allergic suffering

As the beauty of spring and summer unfold, they often bring along an unwelcome companion—seasonal allergies. For many, the blossoming flowers and warmer weather are overshadowed by sneezing, itchy eyes, and a runny nose. Seasonal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis, affect millions of people worldwide. Fortunately, the Boggio Family of Pharmacies is here to help you navigate through these challenging times with expert advice and effective treatments.

Understanding Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies occur when your immune system overreacts to allergens like pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds. Common symptoms include:

• Sneezing

• Runny or stuffy nose

• Itchy or watery eyes

• Itchy throat or ears

• Fatigue

These symptoms can range from mild to severe, impacting daily activities and overall quality of life.

Tips for Managing Seasonal Allergies

1. Stay Informed: Keep track of pollen forecasts in your area and try to stay indoors when counts are high, typically in the morning and on windy days.

2. Keep Windows Closed: Use air conditioning instead of opening windows to keep pollen out of your home and car.

3. Shower and Change Clothes: After spending time outdoors, shower and change your clothes to remove pollen from your skin and hair.

4. Clean Regularly: Vacuum frequently with a HEPA filter and wash bedding in hot water to reduce allergens in your home.

5. Use Over-the-Counter Medications: Antihistamines, decongestants, and nasal corticosteroids can alleviate symptoms. Speak to your pharmacist about the best options for you.

6. Try Natural Remedies: Saline nasal rinses, local honey, and herbal supplements may provide additional relief for some people.
