Don’t get sidelined by springtime allergies. Here’s your four-step plan to get symptoms under control.
- Remember that pollen counts are usually higher in the mornings or on dry, breezy days and plan outdoor activities accordingly.
- Shut your windows and use the air conditioning at home and in the car.
- Try over-the-counter antihistamines and/or decongestants.
- Consider prescription options if OTCs aren’t helping. Talk to your doctor about options that can help.
