What Are Seasonal Allergies?
Fall means that millions of Americans will suffer runny nose, congestion, sneezing, watery, itchy eyes and other symptoms of what we refer to as seasonal allergies, or hayfever. It is caused by pollens from trees, flowers, and grasses, like ragweed, in the spring and fall.
Here are a few of the more common medicinal and natural remedies for seasonal allergies:
Antihistamines block production of histamine, the agent responsible for your symptoms, and are effective in treating and preventing seasonal allergies.
Benadryl is a powerful antihistamine and drying agent that is still the ‘gold standard’ in treating seasonal allergies, but due to its high degree of sedation many people avoid it.
Fexofenadine (Allegra), cetirizine (Zyrtec), and loratidine (Claritin) are also available without a prescription, with the advantages of once daily dosing, and they are non-drowsy.
Fluticasone (Flonase) is a topical steroid that is available without a prescription, and is sprayed in the nostrils. It is very effective at preventing allergies.
Locally grown honey can help you boost your immune system in fighting allergy symptoms, and is a powerful cough suppressant.
Apple cider vinegar has many uses, including fighting symptoms of seasonal allergies.The dose is usually one teaspoonful daily.
Get started before symptoms of seasonal allergies occur.
