We are all very excited about the spring but many persons have seasonal problems. Millions of individuals all over the world live with allergies and for most of them the spring is more than beautiful days and outdoor activities. The most common allergy triggers are pollen (tree, grass or weed), mold spores, dust mite and dander from cats, dogs and rodents.
The pollen is the first and the major allergen that triggers the seasonal allergies. Although is not visible, the pollen appears as soon as February in some cases and so, many persons with allergies don’t even sense it until too late.
The notorious pollen consists in tiny particles released into the air buy flowers, trees and grasses with the only purpose of fertilization. The pollen gets carried away by the wind and practically fills the air and by breathing the pollen gets into the airways and thus into the body.
The spring allergies symptoms include: itchy eyes and nose, watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing and coughing. The pollen, dust and other airborne allergens can also trigger asthma attacks which consist in narrowed airways which makes breathing difficult, causing coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
When it comes to spring allergies is better to start treating the symptoms as soon as possible, preferably even before they set in. The over the counter medications recommended for spring allergies include nasal sprays, oral antihistamines and decongestants.
There are many types of anti-allergically medications but not all of them will fit your symptoms. If you’re under a medication and the symptoms are not under control you should change your medication. Ask your doctor or a pharmacist to prescribe you the right combination of drugs so you can fully enjoy the superb spring days.
