seasonal allergies

Seasonal allergies or also known as hay fever are quite frequent and are produced due to contact with substances suspended in the air that appear specifically at certain times of the year. They appear during times like summer, fall and especially spring.

Around the world for many people spring is one of their favorite seasons and they look forward to it, the trees bloom just like the flowers, it is the favorite time of year for lovers of nature and a cool climate. However, for many people this time of year involves many health complications.

Seasonal allergies are generated due to the pollen that trees, plants and different types of grasses emit during the change of seasons. Pollen is not dangerous, but it affects seasonal allergies differently, confusing their body with something dangerous, which causes different allergic reactions such as:

  • sneezing
  • runny nose
  • itchy skin
  • Congestion

All the symptoms mentioned usually last up to two weeks in affected people. Allergies can make asthma worse and can also lead to different types of infections such as ear infections. These types of allergies can be hereditary. If members of your family have this type of allergy, chances are good that you do too.

Today, pollen counts have increased dramatically confirming that these allergies are real and can be inferred in your daily routine such as work, school and other everyday activities.  

On the other hand, it is possible to combat and eradicate this type of allergies. Previously it was recommended to simply not go outside when the pollen count was high. Thanks to technology and innovation in the medical field, different types of alternatives and medications have come to light to help combat this type of allergy and allow people to continue with their daily routine.

How to fight them?

There are many natural and over-the-counter medications available to relieve these allergy symptoms. You can use the following:

  • Decongestants: Oral decongestants such as pseudoephedrine are effective and provide great temporary relief from nasal congestion. Many of them come in spray options, such as oxymetazoline and phenylephrine. The use of these medications must be controlled following the manufacturer's instructions, and thus get the most out of them.
  • Nasal spray: Different types of disodium cromoglycate nasal sprays can relieve symptoms and do not have serious side effects for allergies. This type of medication is best used before symptoms start, so if you're allergic and know the level of pollen outside, you know what to do.  
  • Oral antihistamines: Antihistamines are the ideal products if part of your symptoms involve sneezing, itching, runny nose, and watery eyes. There is a variety such as loratadine, cetirizine and fexofenadine.
  • Nettle infusion: Nettle infusion has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties which improve the condition of the respiratory tract for pollen allergy. Taking an infusion of its leaves will help stop the symptoms naturally.
  • Eucalyptus oil: Eucalyptus is used in different home remedies to clear the airways, relieving allergy symptoms as well, due to its antiseptic properties and its calming effects.

If it is impossible to control allergies with over-the-counter and natural medications, never hesitate to consult your doctor. He will be able to prescribe different alternatives such as allergy shots, which have had a positive result over time, alleviating the reaction of your immune system to pollen or any other specific allergen.
