I have a severe pollen allergy and I used a Respro mask during the pollen season. It works really well except if the filter becomes waterlogged, in rain or high humidity. Would recommend the Sportsa, and a thick skin, as people will stop and stare.

I suffer with asthma and it's been kept well under control since I was prescribed Seritide about 6 or 7 years ago.
