Seasonal Allery Relief Resources

By jbluethmann from The Pulse – Health and Wellness Resource Center

Spring heralds more daylight, the return of our feathered friends from their sojourn south and the onslaught of spring allergies, often known as hay fever. The most common trigger for spring allergy symptoms is pollen, and in many geographic regions across the country, it can be difficult to escape the pollen released into the air by trees, grasses and weeds at this time of year.

Those individuals allergic to pollen will quickly begin to feel the symptoms in the coming weeks. Those symptoms can include a runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, and sneezing. A myriad of over-the-counter and prescription medications exist to combat allergy symptoms, and many sufferers turn to allergy shots as well. Still others with spring allergies choose simply to limit their time outside and to keep their windows shut despite the temptation after a long winter to let the outside in.

Resources for understanding who’s at risk for spring allergies, diagnosis and treatment are plentiful on the web. Some of those resources follow.

Emory University produced a short video overview of seasonal allergies that can be viewed below.
