Allergy season has begun early this year with warmer temperatures and spring blossoms or trees, flowers and shrubbery. If you have allergies, you know it means sneezing, itchy eyes, a runny or stopped-up nose, headaches, fatigue and possibly more.
What can help?
- First, discuss with your doctor (or pharmacist) medications (whether prescribed or over-the-counter) that can be of help.
- Keep windows and doors closed during the season so pollen can't get inside.
- Use antihistamines and decongestants as necessary and as tolerated.
- Change your home's air filters often; install an air cleaner and air purifier.
- Wear a mask if you need to mow the lawn or work outside.
