Just a Few Short Days to Go
All allergies are not environmental. Did you know that genetics play a role as well?
According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, if one parent suffers from allergies, the child is 40% more likely to have allergies as well; if both parents have allergies, their children are 75% more likely to have allergies.
While avoidance is a great way to curb allergic reactions, it’s not always that feasible to do so.
Doctors can treat many allergies utilizing medications such as nasal sprays and pills. Many effective medications are available to treat common allergies, and a doctor can help you to identify those that work for you.
If the spring and summer seasons leave you sneezing and wheezing, you may have allergies.
If you’re not sure whether your symptoms are caused by allergies or a cold, talk with your doctor.
