Providing relief during the allergy season


It's spring - the flowers are blooming, grass is growing and the sun shines brighter. It may be a beautiful season if you're not stuck at home sneezing. This time of year can bring discomfort to allergy sufferers as pollen fills the air. If you're tired of sneezing, dealing with water eyes, and itching, in this blogpost we're exploring 3 effective ways to help you treat and relieve seasonal allergies.

3 Tips to relieve seasonal allergies

1. Nasal Sprays

Nasal decongestants can help relieve stuffiness and wash out the nasal cavities. Other sprays and pumps, like Stérimar™ Stop & Protect Allergy Response, form a protective and invisible film to prevent allergens from coming into contact with the nasal cavity and provide reinforced effective protection against further allergic reactions.

2. Keep indoors allergy-free

We cannot control what goes on outside but there are many steps you can take at home to prevent an allergy attack and limit your exposure to triggers.

  • Dehumidifier in humid months will help remove excess moisture in the air, and reduce mold from growing which can cause allergies.
  • Vacuum your home regularly especially if you have pets.
  • Take a shower after you've been outside to remove pollen from the surface of your skin.
  • Wash your clothes after you've been outdoors.
  • HEPA air filtration systems.
  • Keep pets out of your bedroom.
  • Use an air purifier.
  • Keep your windows shut.

3. Antihistamines

Antihistamines like Clarityn can be taken daily to relieve hayfever and allergy symptoms caused airborne allergens like pollen and dust - relieving runny nose, itchy & watery eyes, sneezing, and itchy nose or throat. Always speak to your doctor about your allergies before taking any medications.
