Dealing With Season Allergy Symptoms
By Masni Rizal Mansor

Dealing with season symptoms has become a fact of life for many of us. This year has been officially called the worst season ever. People who have never suffered of any type of allergies have reported season symptoms such as itchy eyes, runny noses, sneezing etc.

Fact is more then 20% of American population suffers with some sort of allergies; 14 million visiting their doctor and it was estimated 4 million sick days will be taken due to the season allergy. Hartford, Connecticut took the number one position in seasonal allergies this year due to high pollen count.

Here are some myths and facts to treat the season allergy:

* Myth – cold medications. These medications are only efficient for colds and will not help in any way your symptoms. Do not have them even if friends and family tell you they are effective. Only medications will help you get relief.

* Myth – air purifiers. It is true that this will help to a certain degree, because keeping the air clean, which the air purifier

achieves, is part of keeping the allergies at bay, however, they cannot clean out pollen.

* Fact – Over the counter medications do work. Those that are available in pharmacies are great provided you already know that you are suffering from season allergy. Do not self medicate.

* Fact – Know your condition and be aware of the foods and places that trigger the allergies. Avoid the following (to name a few): carrots, apples and pears.

* Fact – Have a shower before you get to bed. Cleaning off all the dust and pollen is very effective. You can even take a shower when you get back home for fast relief.

* Fact – sunglasses block pollen from getting into your eyes preventing you effectively from season allergy.

Treating season symptoms is not as simple as some new set of laws do restrict over the counter sale of some decongestants. That is any medication containing pseudoephedrine will be sold only by prescription and that too limited amount a month.
The good news that is many of the over the counter drugs are very effective and can cure you of the season allergy.

Surviving season is not an easy task, it’s something you have to constantly be conscious about and in control of; with constant surveillance and organization, care and a lot of love and understanding from your family you should get through even the worst of the seasons.
