Cold remedies alone are selling at 60 per cent higher than the normal rate. At the same time, 40 per cent fewer people than expected in the summer are buying allergy treatments.
This June the UK experienced the most rainfall since records began in 1914, according to the Met Office. With many parts of England left flooded after torrential downpours, July is unlikely to fare any better.

The figures were compiled from UK branches of Lloydspharmacy.
