With a change in seasons, comes many other changes in nature. This new season brings about many changes across most regions of the United States. Warmer temperatures, rainy days, and flowers in bloom are among the many natural changes associated with spring. Many people also look forward to the longer daylight hours. While spring brings thoughts of pleasantries, more than half of the US population struggles with the start of the Allergy Season.
Understanding Seasonal Allergies: What Are the Symptoms?
As the weather changes from Winter into Spring, plants begin to grow and bloom. Increased plant and tree activity brings about a rise in pollen which can trigger a reaction in the body. When your immune system comes in contact with high levels of allergens, many different allergy symptoms develop, including:
Increased mucus production
Dealing with Seasonal Allergies
There are several ways to reduce allergy symptoms. These include:
Getting help with OTC products from your Neighborhood Pharmacist
Washing clothing and linens in hot water
Wearing a mask over the nose & mouth while dusting and cleaning

Is it COVID-19 or Allergies?
How can you tell the difference between COVID-19 symptoms or allergy symptoms? The past few months have seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations but it’s essential to remember COVID is not entirely removed from our lives just yet. Since some COVID symptoms and allergy symptoms do overlap, it’s important to know when to see a healthcare professional.
Unlike allergy sufferers, COVID often presents with fever and body aches. The diagram provided below helps determine the similarities and differences between COVID-19 and allergies.
