Do you suffer from allergies? Do you know your allergy triggers? Unfortunately, for millions of people living with spring allergies, this means the start of seasonal allergic rhinitis, which is commonly referred to as nasal allergies or hay fever. Hay fever can drastically impact the lives of those affected due to sleep disruption, sinus infections, and the inability to be productive at school or work. The main culprit causing this condition is pollen, a very fine powder released by trees, weeds and grasses.
Avoiding your allergy triggers is the best treatment for allergy sufferers, but that isn't always possible. It is important that you be proactive. If you know your allergies are worse during the spring season, visit with your doctor in advance of allergy season to discuss the best treatment options for you. Starting treatment before symptoms actually appear will lessen the severity of your symptoms or prevent them from developing.
