Spring has finally sprung. The sun is shining, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and of course, people are sneezing. They do say “April showers bring May flowers,” and sure, they are pretty and colorful, but when you’re sneezing 40 times a minute, they don’t seem as great. Spring season means allergy season. Allergies are definitely not fun, but this spring season stay healthy and sneeze-free.

As the warm weather approaches you may think you’re getting sick; but, maybe it is only allergies. Here are a few symptoms you may want to consider:

* Sneezing

* Runny nose

* Headache

* Itchy/watery eyes

* Sore/scratchy throat

* Shortness of breath while running/exercising

* Coughing

If you notice you are experiencing any of these symptoms, unfortunately, you may have the dreadful seasonal allergies. Here are a handful of ideas to help cope with it:

* Stay hydrated

* Take allergy medicine every morning

* Cough drops

* Take Advil for headaches

* Keep tissues handy

* Be sure to shower before you go to bed each night –wash away the pollen before you slumber

Allergies are very common, in fact 17 out of the 32 people surveyed had seasonal allergies. They can be extremely hard to deal with especially if you are an athlete. The running does not help with the fact that you are already having trouble breathing. Any other questions on how to cope with allergies visit this helpful site.
