Spring and autumn–such beautiful seasons of the year to be spent outdoors. Go outside, go enjoy the flowers of spring blooming. Stroll through the fiery leaves of fall. Go outside. I dare you. Even the boldest may be faced with adversity in their mission to survive the allergy seasons. Perhaps you are one of these brave souls. And there are many others who do not find solace in the year-round sneezing, nose dripping, nose congesting, eye-watering, head aching overtures of rhinitis. Molds, hair, feathers, dust, mites, and other airborne substances are household menaces. Allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever, is an exaggerated response by the immune system to allergens inhaled. These allergens trigger histamine production that cause inflammation and fluid production in lining of the nose and sinuses. Usually, decongestant sprays and antihistamine drugs don’t always bring relief and their side effects may include drowsiness, nervousness, insomnia, and palpitations of the heart. Some antihistamines and allergy medicines may also produce allergic reactions of their own.
