Find Relief From Seasonal Allergies @MinuteClinic @CVS_Extra #Ad

     If your family is like ours, you experience seasonal allergies the moment that summer turns into fall.  As a matter of fact, we don’t even need the calendar to let us know that the seasons are changing because we have our sniffly noses and watery eyes to let us know this time has come.  The symptoms from seasonal allergies are very uncomfortable and many people struggle to find relief as soon as possible.  

    There are more allergy triggers in the fall. Typically, weed pollens, like ragweed and mold allergies are those that flare up come fall.  Dust mites are a common allergen in the fall. When you start to close up your house when the weather gets cooler, old blankets and quilts could be hosting dust mites that can be an irritant.  Itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, headache, sinus pressure are general allergy symptoms and we experience all of them in this home.

    For those of us looking for some relief, symptoms can usually be controlled with treatment. Nasal saline, decongestants and over- the-counter or prescription antihistamines may help relieve symptoms as well.  Thank goodness, there are plenty of options!  At MinuteClinic, their nurse practitioners and physicians assistants can recommend the right over-the-counter medications and write prescriptions when medically appropriate.

Here are some tips to help you stay healthy and to help prevent allergies:

  • In the early fall, keep your windows closed from 10am to 4pm. This will reduce your exposure to allergens like ragweed.
  • Clean and change air filters every three months to reduce the amount of dirt, debris, and allergens that you come in contact with everyday.
  • Avoid window fans! While convenient, they tend to bring in unwanted pollens or mold spores.
  • Don’t accessorize w/ itchy red eyes! Visit @MinuteClinic for the allergy relief you need.
  • In the fall, we start pulling out cozy quilts when it gets cold. But these can be the home to dust mites, causing your allergies to become enflamed. Wash your bedding every two weeks to help ease allergy symptoms.

    If you’re diagnosed with allergies, medication may help relieve your symptoms. The best way to treat allergies is to avoid the allergen – whatever it may be.  Let MinuteClinic help you and your family enjoy the fall without pesky allergy symptoms!

  1. These are great tips. My allergies have been really bad since last week. I need to try a new allergy medicine.

  2. Nicole suffers from mild allergies. Worse in the Fall than Spring. Sometimes the OTC stuff helps, other times not at all!

  3. We both have seasonal allergies and I am always stocked up on allergy products in my house.

  4. I get really bad Hay Fever that is about it. I have medication from the doctors which normally helps.

  5. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    We are a spring allergy family and we all take OTC medication for it. Allergies are the worst.

  13. My mom doesn’t need a calendar either. Allergies can really pose a challenge on being able to enjoy the season.

  14. As I get older, I find that I have developed seasonal allergies. We keep a lot of meds on hand to help curb the symptoms.

  15. For seasonal allergies, we always use Benadryl to help us with the symptoms. My eldest son and my husband have the worst allergy attacks and it is always a must that I have enough Benadryl for them.

    Thank you! I didn’t know that tip about window fans not being great for allergies. I have mold allergies so I am gearing up for winter.
