Ready for Spring Allergies
The onset of spring spells allergy season and misery for people with allergies. A study has found that patients with seasonal allergies often wait until it is too late to manage their symptoms.
Key takeaways: · Three out of four people start managing symptoms once they feel sick — or after the allergy season had started.
· People with allergies can start by closing the windows at home and staying indoors on high pollen count days.
· After being outdoors, nasal gargling can help to prevent nasal mucus and keep symptoms under control.
Also, more than half did not know what prescriptions were available to ease their allergy symptoms, while roughly a third did not know their allergy triggers or how to ease symptoms.
