Your Jeffrey’s Drug Store Can Help You with Allergy Symptoms

Updated: Oct 5

The seasons have changed! Spring 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. While the new season brings brighter days, more than half of the US population struggles with seasonal allergies.

Understanding Seasonal Allergies

As the weather changes, plants begin to launch their seeds and bloom and results in a rise in pollen. When your immune system comes in contact with high levels of allergens, many different allergy symptoms develop, including:

  • Runny nose

  • Watery eyes

  • Coughing

  • Sneezing

  • Throat irritation

  • Increased mucus production

Stop Struggling With Seasonal Allergies

There are several tactics that are effective in reducing 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 past few months have seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. While the numbers are starting to trend in the right direction, 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 clear up some confusion between COVID-19 and allergies.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, call your local Jeffrey’s Drug Store to help determine the next steps!
