It’s just a cold, right? Sniffles, sneezing, itchiness, and irritation all might seem like a normal part of life, but for people who suffer from seasonal allergies, there’s a lot more to it than that. With spring already here, seasonal allergy sufferers are starting to stock their medicine cabinets with allergy medications and home remedies that might alleviate their suffering.
Allergies - Should I Just Ignore Them?
One of the most important aspects of having seasonal allergies is understanding that it’s not just about how the symptoms manifest themselves. It’s about a lot more than just being irritated and inconvenienced for a period of the year when pollens, molds, and other seasonal allergy culprits are at their height. Seasonal allergies, if gone untreated, can pose a lifetime of health risks. These risks include chronic skin irritations that could continue to flare up, severe recurring sinus infections, lung infections, lung disease, or asthma. While most people go straight to medications to treat their symptoms, there are other ways you can help minimize your risk around your home as well. Keep doors and windows closed, make sure to shower and wash your clothes after being outside, avoid yard work and outdoor activities when pollen counts are high, and use allergy filters on your air conditioner.
