What Are Seasonal Allergies?
Not everyone deals with seasonal allergies, but if you do, you’re one in a million! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 60 million people in the United States have seasonal allergies. If you have this condition, it means that your immune system identifies pollen or another otherwise harmless substance (such as grass) as dangerous and, as such, tries to destroy it when you breathe it in. In doing so, your body responds with symptoms such as:
- A stuffy or runny nose
- Itchy, watery eyes
- A scratchy throat
For most seasonal allergy sufferers, over-the-counter antihistamines, decongestants, and nasal sprays can provide the relief they’re looking for. Other lifestyle changes can be effective, such as investing in a HEPA filter or a dehumidifier and washing your clothes and taking a shower immediately after coming in from outside.
Medical Treatment for Seasonal Allergies
If over-the-counter medication isn’t providing the relief you need, our urgent care center can help. We can talk to you about allergy shots and prescribe a stronger medication, including prescription eye drops, combination drugs, and oral and nasal steroids.
