The Worst Allergy Season Ever?

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on May 28, 2013

 

Pictured above is my best friend for the past week and a half…my allergy pill.  Although I HATE taking any medication at all, I really can’t remember having this bad of an allergy season.  I am completely miserable without my allergy meds this season.  Apparently, this allergy season is one of the worst on record. It is starting earlier and lasting longer too!  🙁

I read an ABC news article that had some tips to help us allergy sufferers survive this season (by the way, I haven’t been doing any of these things, but sure plan to!)

  • Don’t wait to start taking allergy meds until your symptoms are unbearable; may want to see an allergist to help pinpoint when to start
  • Ceck pollen counts online
  • Wear oversized sunglasses and wide brimmed hats to keep pollen and other allergans away
  • The only thing I have been doing is giving my dog a bath VERY OFTEN…he’s a pollen magnet.  🙂

Good luck, fellow allergy sufferers.  🙂
