Pollen and Allergy Relief

Here's some allergy relief.

See Your Allergist for More Allergy Relief

Lastly, if you are plagued by pollen allergies year round, your doctor may recommend allergy testing and allergy shots (immunotherapy). To get allergy relief, your doctor may also prescribe an inhaled steroid nasal spray, a non-sedating antihistamine, a decongestant, or other allergy medications.          

It's important to stay on your allergy medications daily to get full allergy relief and to prevent further problems.  Allergy medicines are especially necessary during spring pollen season when you risk being in allergy overload from all the offending substances.  

If you feel that your allergy medicines are not giving you enough relief, talk to your doctor or allergist.  Many of the newer inhaled allergy medicines can help stop inflammation and mucus production without side effects, allowing you to regain control of your active life.
