Interference: Botox may block some of the symptom-causing chemicals released by nerve endings in the nose

Relief: Applying a Botox gel to the nose could hopefully relieve hay fever symptoms such as sneezing and a runny nose for up to three months

Gel is applied to the nose and will penetrate the skin

It's hoped the toxin will block chemicals released by the body that cause annoying symptoms

It has been used to treat a host of ailments from migraines to incontinence - and that's on top of it being the world's most famous wrinkle-buster.

Now Australian scientists are to trial Botox to treat hay fever after early tests showed promising results.

Under the trial, a Botox gel will be applied to the nose to hopefully give hay fever sufferers relief from sneezing, itchy eyes and runny noses for up to three months.
