Treating and Preventing Seasonal Allergies

If you find yourself coughing, sneezing and feeling generally low at certain times of the year then this could indicate that you are suffering from a seasonal allergy.

The symptoms of seasonal allergies are often worse in the Spring and the Summer, but for the unfortunate some, symptoms can occur all year round. Fortunately, there are many different methods and treatments you can use to treat seasonal allergy symptoms and to keep them under control.

The first step to controlling your seasonal allergy symptoms is to recognize what is causing them. Are you allergic to pollen? Or perhaps you are having an allergic reaction to mold?.

Next time you feel like you have itchy watery eyes, or you start sneezing take a look at your surroundings and try to identify what is causing this to happen. As soon as you have discovered your allergen, you will be in a much better position to treat and manage it.

As mentioned above, there are many different ways to treat and relieve the symptoms of seasonal allergy – but the most popular and effective method is allergy relief medication. If you symptoms are only mild then you may get away with purchasing over the counter medication.

However, if you have severe symptoms then you may need to visit your doctor so he can prescribe you something stronger. Prescription OTC allergy relief medication can help you if your symptoms are causing you distress or pain.

If your seasonal allergy symptoms are only mild you may choose to stick to using over the counter allergy medication. If this is the case, you should always read the labels on the back of the medication for advice on ingredients and dosage.

If you know other allergy sufferers then you could also ask for their opinion on what medication they use. If in any doubt, you can also ask the pharmacist which over the counter allergy medication they recommend.
