It’s that beautiful time of year again. The bees are buzzing, the birds are chirping, our eyes are watering and our noses running. Lots of us have those moments where you sit down and genuinely miss the days when you could breathe clearly through your nose.
Why is this Happening?
Common allergens include dust mites, animal dander, mold and of course pollen. Pollen is prevalent in these glorious spring/summer days and although many get to enjoy the beautiful weather, some of us must suffer. Approximately 25% of Canadians experience allergic rhinitis, so it’s a common condition among the general population.
You’re most likely to have noticed these allergy symptoms develop before you hit 20 years old, and it usually affects men and women equally in adulthood. It has been found that it is also commonly associated with asthma, food allergies, and atopic dermatitis.
What Do I Do?
There are several medications available to you to help your allergies, but if you really want to tackle them full force, come talk to our Pharmacists at Capsule Pharmacy.
We can work with you to determine the pattern, frequency, and severity which will help determine the best course of action going forward.
You may just need an over the counter anti-histamine, decongestant, nasal spray, or eye drops. There are also prescription strength medications that are available to effectively treat symptoms of allergic rhinitis, which your Capsule Pharmacist can prescribe for you if necessary.
No matter what will work best for you, our Capsule Pharmacists will help you every step of the way.
So, get out there, enjoy your summer, and live healthy!
