Getting Serious About Treating your Allergies

 

For Canadians, the arrival of May is something to celebrate. The weather is getting warmer, playoff hockey is here and nature is in full bloom. If the mention of spring weather and budding trees makes you groan instead of cheer, you’re likely one of the millions of Canadians who suffer from seasonal allergies.  Don’t let allergies dampen your spirits- it’s time to take action. Allergies can really interfere with your quality of life, and you deserve better! Luckily when it comes to dealing with seasonal sniffles, you have options. Below are some helpful tips for a sneeze-free allergy season. 

 

1.Have your allergy medications ready 

Have your allergy medication at hand before the first signs of symptoms. Antihistamines can help decrease sneezing, runny nose and itchy-watery eyes.Claritin® Allergy + Sinus Extra Strengthgives you 24-hour non-drowsy relief from bothersome allergy symptoms caused by pollen, ragweed, grass, dust, pets and moulds.

 

2.Air conditioners are your friend

If plants (trees, grass, pollen and ragweed) are at fault for your allergy symptoms, control the air inside by keeping the windows in your home and car closed. Turning on the air conditioner is a better way to keep cool while keeping your symptoms in check. 

 

3.Give your furry pal a brush 

Dogs and cats that have been outside can track pollen into your home. Make a habit of brushing your pet before you head back inside to keep pollen out. It’s also a great idea to give yourself a shake before you step in to avoid tracking pollen throughout your home.

 

4.Clear your head 

For some allergy sufferers, symptoms can include sinus pressure and sinus congestion. Make sure you’re picking up the right allergy medication for you. AERIUS® Dual Action 12hr is an antihistamine that delivers multi-symptom allergy relief for 12 hours, including relief from nasal congestion and stuffiness.   

 

5.Take yourself off lawn duty 

Keeping the grass short is a good idea for reducing grass allergens – but don’t cut it yourself! Call in a favour from a partner, family member or friend. 

 

6.Hit the treadmill 

Running outside, especially when pollen counts are high, can be a recipe for sore eyes. If morning runs are part of your routine, consider hitting the gym or a home treadmill instead.How will you spring into action this year to keep allergy symptoms in check?
