At first glance seasonal allergies may not seem like a big deal. But anybody who has suffered through a pollen filled spring knows that being affected by seasonal allergies can feel like the worst. And, there are lot of allergy sufferers out there. In fact it is estimated that over 50 million Americans are affected by allergies every year.
There are plenty of medications–both over the counter and prescription–that target the effects of seasonal allergies. If you find yourself sneezing throughout the spring, we urge you to speak with your doctor about the different options.
That said, there are also things can done instead of or in addition to medication to help make spring a little bit less miserable. Keeping windows closed and using your air conditioner, making sure the HVAC filter is clean, and vacuuming on a regular basis are good habits to practice when your allergies start to flare up.
In addition to those ideas, we reached out on Facebook to see other ways in which people deal with their seasonal allergies and what advice they have to offer. This is what we learned.
