Spring allergies are Here

Dr. Andrew Nickels“This time of year brings with it seasonal allergies. First the trees pollenate and in May, the grass pollen comes out in full force. Symptoms of seasonal allergies include nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery, red eyes. For those with asthma, the allergy season can bring increased asthma symptoms as well. There are great medicines, some over the counter like antihistamines and steroid nasal sprays, and some prescriptions, that can help control these symptoms. Allergy shots can be helpful to improve symptom control and decrease the need for medications.”
