Seasonal sneezes

Seasonal sneezes

Spring allergy season is in full swing. As more trees and flowers begin to bud and flower, more pollen is potentially released into the air. For millions of Americans, this means seasonal allergies.

Seasonal allergies are temporary, manifested as coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose or scratchy throat. Often confused with cold symptoms, the way to know for sure if it’s allergies is to get tested. There is no cure for allergies, but alleviating the symptoms ranges from nasal sprays and eye drops to prescribed pills. Simple actions, like not opening windows and doors, can also help prevent allergy crises.
