  • Don’t let allergies ruin your day.

    Millions of Americans suffer sneezing, itchy nose, or congestion because of seasonal allergies. These symptoms can be annoying and disruptive to downright debilitating. But you don’t have to wish for spring and summer to end. Just follow these simple tips to lessen your allergy symptoms. 

    • Stay indoors on dry, windy days, or days when a high pollen count is in the forecast.
    • Delegate yard work – no lawn mowing or pulling weeds.
    • Avoid outdoor activities in the early morning when pollen counts are often highest.
    • Keep pollen and other allergens off your face and body by washing your hands often with soap and water.
    • Don’t hang clothes to dry outside.

    There are a number of over-the-counter medications that may help you alleviate your allergy symptoms. Consult with your physician before taking new medications. 

    However, for many people, over-the-counter medications won’t be enough. If you have bad seasonal allergies, your physician can give you a test to help identify exactly what you are allergic to that is causing your symptoms. For more extreme cases, allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) can be a good option.
