Updated: Jun 14, 2022
Spring has sprung! Warmer temperatures, rainy days, and flowers in bloom are among the many natural changes associated with spring. While spring brings many changes, more than half of the US population contends with the start of the Allergy Season.
Understanding Seasonal Allergies
As the seasons change, plants begin to launch their seeds and bloom creating an increase in pollen. 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 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?
The past few months have seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. While the numbers are starting to decline, it’s essential to remember coronavirus 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.
