Stop those sniffles right in their tracks! There’s nothing fun about a battle with seasonal allergies. Itchy eyes, a sore throat or nose, a runny nose, congestion, coughing and sneezing are no fun for anyone. These bouts tend to happen around roughly the same time each year, hence the seasonal aspect. Relief is the only thing you’re interested in when you’re tangled in a tussle with allergies. Well, prepare to put the Kleenex box away! Here are 5 ways to combat seasonal allergies:
1. Daily Hist
Give Daily Hist, or D-Hist as we like to call it, a try to combat your seasonal allergies! D-Hist is a blend of multiple supplements that work in conjunction to provide comprehensive support for seasonal challenges caused by environmental allergens. This combination of antioxidants, flavonoids, botanicals and proteolytic enzymes promotes healthy nasal and sinus passages in those with seasonal allergies. Made from quercetin, bromelain, stinging nettles leaf, N-acetyl cysteine and Vitamin C, D-Hist is particularly helpful for individuals who are hypersensitive.
2. Our Allergy Kit
Throw the kitchen sink at your allergies with our allergy kit! This package features 4 separate medicines each designed to target your symptoms from different angles. It includes Daily Hist, NeilMed Sinus Rinse with Xylitol, Alkalol Nasal Wash and Major 4 Hour Allergy Tablets. The rinse and wash are perfect for clearing out nasal passages to help you better breathe while the tablets and D-Hist target your unwanted symptoms. You’ll be back to enjoying clean air in no time with the help of our allergy kit!
3. Over-The-Counter Medicines
Several different over-the-counter medicines can help to combat seasonal allergies. Oral antihistamines such as Allegra and Zyrtec can help to provide relief from sneezing, itching, irritated eyes and a runny nose. Claritin-D and Sudafed are a couple of oral decongestants that can help clear up sinus and nasal congestion. Give corticosteroid nasal sprays like Flonase and Nasacort a try to fight stuffy nasal passages.
4. Sinus Rinses
Breathe at last with the help of sinus rinses! NeilMed Sinus Rinse and Alkalol Nasal Wash are a couple of readily available sinus rinses that work to clear out the mucus and allergens in passages that have become clogged because of seasonal allergies. Even a simple saline solution sinus rinse will do. You can make one at home by combining 1 quart of water, 1.5 teaspoons of canning salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda.
5. Allergy Shots
For those who have tried a number of different remedies without success, allergy shots, or immunotherapy, could finally provide the relief you’ve so desperately have been seeking. These routine shots work by slowly building up allergens in your system over time, allowing your body to adapt and learn to tolerate the allergens rather than experience common seasonal allergy symptoms. Rather than cure your allergies, allergy shots help to lessen the typical symptoms you’ll experience.
Give these remedies a try to combat your seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies are one of a handful of common ear, nose and throat problems we see at Specialty Care Pharmacy. Take a look at some of these common issues and how we can help!
