You think you probably have allergies because your runny-nose and itchy-eye problem seems to be seasonal and somewhat predictable. You can’t really put your finger on the exact trigger and the problem becomes more complex if you travel.
You may, along with many others, feel that going through full-blown rounds of allergy testing is unnecessary. You feel your allergy problem isn’t that bad, but it is bad enough you’d like to have a better grip on what opens your nose faucet. What can you do?
One thing you can do to begin figuring out what it is you’re allergic to is to subscribe to an allergy alert program such as the one offered by Pollen.com. This site offers an email sent right to your inbox that tells you what the active allergens are for today and tomorrow. You can follow a link to the website for a four-day forecast.
Not only can you see what the active allergens are in your area, you can see what allergens are active in other areas around the nation for those of you that travel.
If you can narrow down what triggers your allergic reactions, you can take actions with herbal remedies or over-the-counter medications to minimize the problems.
Best wishes in this sneezin’ season.
