Many people suffer from seasonal allergies and want to know what they can do to stop the uncomfortable symptoms and get rid of their allergies. Thankfully, there are three main ways people can block their seasonal allergies.
1. Limit Exposure
The first way is to try to avoid what you're allergic to. By limiting your exposure to the allergens that trigger your seasonal allergy symptoms, you will be able to reduce the frequency of your allergic reactions and symptoms. While this is an effective method of decreasing your allergy symptoms, it can be hard to avoid pollen in the air. If you have allergies to pollen, you can try keeping your house clean to reduce your exposure while inside, but it can be difficult to completely prevent exposure when you are outside.
2. OTC Medications
The second way is using over-the-counter (OTC) medications for seasonal allergies like antihistamines and Flonase. OTC medications are effective at temporarily reducing your allergy symptoms. These medications are also easily found at your local pharmacy. While easy to find, they are only a short-term solution. OTC medications mask your symptoms instead of treating the root cause of your allergies.
The third way to beat your seasonal allergies is by using allergy immunotherapy, which is a method of exposing your body to small doses of what you're allergic to until over time you become desensitized. By training your body to stop reacting to allergens in your environment, immunotherapy fixes your allergies for long-term relief.
