spring allergiesHow to deal with spring allergies?

Now that spring is really here, I have a lot of allergic reactions to pollen in the air. My eyes get red and itchy and my nose is stuffy and sneeze a lot. If you spend much time outside, my face and eyes get red and swollen. What can I do about it?

I already have the eye drops, but they take a long time to work, and in the evenings, my eyes still get really ITCHY. (I use contact lenses by the way.)

Best Answer:

Spring allergies are primarily caused by the pollination of trees such as oaks, elms, poplars, sycamores and maples. As the season progresses, pollinating grasses can also trigger allergy responses.

Here are a few of the best over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medication which are the most effective at reducing spring allergy symptoms:

  • Antihistamines, such as Claritin, Zyrtec and Allegra work well by blocking the release of histamine, a chemical produced by your immune systems over-reaction to airborne allergens.
  • Nasal steroids, like Beconase, Flonase, Nasacort, Nasonex, Rhinocort, and Veramyst will reduce inflammation and treat that runny nose brought on by seasonal or year-round allergies.
  • Leukotriene modifiers, such as Singular work by blocking the effects of leukotrienes, which is another chemical produced nu the immune system in response to an allergen.

Before using any other the medications above, it is wise to talk to your doctor or better yet, consult with an allergy professional as to what allergy medications are best for your symptoms.

Early in spring, trees such as oaks, elms, poplars, sycamores, and maples are the biggest sources of pollen. As the season progresses, pollinating grasses often trigger symptoms. By late summer or early fall, weeds, especially ragweed, are producing large quantities of pollen.
