What are Some Tips for Keeping Seasonal Allergies Under Control?

Dr. Allen explains: What are Some Tips for Keeping Seasonal Allergies Under Control?  

 

If you have allergies, you may have a runny, stuffy nose, as well as feeling “hazy,” for weeks at a time.

You can control allergy symptoms by taking over-the-counter medicines or those prescribed by your doctor.

Some medicines that can help relieve allergy symptoms include:

  • Eye drops
  • Nasal spray
  • Pills
  • Injections

You may have fewer allergy symptoms if you avoid allergens as much as possible, such as:

  • Dust
  • Animal dander
  • Mold
  • Pollen and other outdoor allergens

If you’re having allergy symptoms, talk to your doctor about what you can do to help control them.
