Allergy Relief Tips

The sudden invasion of an allergen like pollen and dander can cause your immune system to respond to remove the unknown and potentially dangerous substance. This reaction can be at best uncomfortable, and at worst, debilitating.

Your immune system works by releasing antibodies to commonly targeted areas of the body. While this function is necessary to fight off colds and bacteria, the antibodies released by your immune system can’t tell the difference between a threatening foreign substance and a harmless one. An allergen such as pollen might not affect many people around you, but if it’s one of your triggers, you’re going to want quick allergy relief.

Coming into contact with an allergen can produce a variety of physiological effects. Your immune system can cause tissues in your nasal passage, airways, skin, and gastrointestinal tract to become inflamed. While most allergies can’t be cured, medication can help relieve your allergy symptoms.

Allergy Symptoms

Histamine is a chemical response to the immune system releasing an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). As IgE spreads throughout the body, histamines are flooded into the immune system looking for receptors to activate, this causes a physiological response (AKA allergy symptoms) to help remove the allergen. Antihistamines provide relief from allergies by blocking histamines from activating receptors in your body.

The most common responses to allergens include:

Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)


Itchy throat

Itchy nose and eyes

Runny nose

Watery eyes

Pet and Mold Allergies

Many symptoms of pet and mold allergies mimic those of allergic rhinitis. They include:

Runny nose

Nasal congestion*

Facial pressure and pain*

Itchy, watery eyes

Postnasal drip*

Allergies aren’t generally cured. However, there are steps you can take to relieve allergic rhinitis symptoms. If you begin feeling seasonal effects, then relieving allergies should be your top priority.

Allergy Relief Tips

Sometimes the best cure is prevention. With that in mind, you can take steps to avoid the allergens that hit you hardest.

Stay indoors with all of the windows firmly secured when the pollen count is high. If you’re prone to itchiness and nasal congestion during pollen, ragweed, and/or hay fever season, avoid going outside whenever possible.

Avoid the most common triggers that cause you to have an allergic reaction. If you’re prone to allergic reactions caused by pet dander, dust mites and mold, then you will need to tidy, vacuum, and frequently wash your pillowcases and bed sheets.
