Health Tips for Spring Allergies

Springtime allergies bother many of us when nature begins to bloom.

The physicians at Carolina Otolaryngology, PA would like to offer you these tips for dealing with the symptoms that often accompany spring allergies:

If you've never had allergies before, but suspect you're having them now, consult your physician.

Try to avoid being outside when the pollen count is particularly high. Look to the left for today's count. Keep doors and windows shut to keep pollen out.

Use air filters indoors, and have someone vacuum regularly (don't do it yourself-this can stir up dust and pollen and trigger your allergies.)

Over-the-counter medications such as antihistamines, nasal sprays and eye drops can help. (Make sure you check the labels carefully to make sure the medication is safe for you. Also, check with your doctor or pharmacist before combining medications.)
