Hi Reema, I know your question was a few years ago but stinging nettles are amazing for relieving hay fever & the symptoms you described. Brew a good amount of nettles in a large jar/container filled with hot water allow to steep for 12-24 hours then strain. You can bottle a large amount to refrigerate which will keep fresh for about a week. Drink a small glass of nettle juice daily or as needed. I hope this response is of help to you or anyone else who reads it.
All the best.

Apply Garlic paste on chest everyday. Take 2 teaspoons of Basil leaf juice, add a pinch of black pepper to it. Have it twice a day. Give your friend herbs to boost the immunity, herbs like Golden Seal and Echinacea capsules, one daily for a month.
