Spring has arrived and for many of us that means the start of a runny nose, watery, itchy eyes, sneezing and coughing. Spring allergies are caused by pollen such as: trees, grass and weeds. They release these tiny grains into the air to fertilize other plants and when they get in to the nose of someone who is allergic, it makes their bodies defense go haywire. Pollen is higher on breezy days and lower on rainy days as it washes away the allergens.
Treatment: Take allergy medicine 2 weeks before symptoms are likely to set in, limit your exposure, Vitamin C, nasal spray, eat healthy and exercise, give your home a thorough cleaning.
