Healthy Living: Spring Allergies


Spring has sprung and so has allergy season!  Unfortunately this beautiful time of year is also the time for runny noses, watery eyes and lots of sneezing. But your allergies don’t have to keep you from enjoying your daily life. Follow these helpful tips to help fight off your spring allergies and enjoy the great outdoors!

Keep pollen under control- Pollen is easily tracked inside your home, so it’s a good idea to wash your bed’s sheets weekly in hot water. And after a long day of working in the yard or spending family time outside, take a shower and wash your hair as soon as you come inside. 

Keep your indoor air free from the outdoors- It is tempting to open all the windows in my house on these gorgeous spring days, but for allergy sufferers, it’s best to keep all the windows closed during pollen season. Spring breezes carry pollen through the air…and the cleaner you keep your air, the clearer your eyes! 

Talk to our pharmacists about taking allergy medicine- You don’t have to suffer through spring. There are lots of remedies and reliefs available now – from over-the-counter nasal saline rinses to antihistamines and decongestants. It can be confusing to decide which allergy medication is best for you or your children, so you are always welcome to stop by one of our Brookshire’s pharmacies to talk with one of our pharmacists and find just what you need. 

Don’t let allergies take you away from enjoying your favorite springtime outdoor activities. By following a few easy steps, you can say goodbye to your sneezes and watery eyes and welcome this beautiful season with open arms!
