Pollen allergy is widespread but a stuffy nose relief is always available
When pollen season strikes, hay fever can be a misery for many, all around the world; find out the causes, symptoms and how to get stuffy nose relief
During flowering season, flowers all over the planet release pollen, a fine, yellow powdery dust which fertilizes other plants. But not only flowers send their fertilizing powder out, but also grasses, trees and weeds.
Hay fever, or medically, allergic rhinitis, is the result of the allergic reaction to one or more types of pollen; its preferred season is spring to early summer, though in the case of trees and grasses, it can extend to late summer and even autumn. Some trees pollinate in winter too.
Pollen is carried around by insects, birds and wind, so its presence in the air is very widespread and difficult to avoid.
The symptoms of pollen allergy are congested, blocked or runny nose, sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, itchy or sore throat, coughing and even asthma.
So how do you get stuffy nose relief and breathe freely?
Avoiding exposure by staying indoors is not always possible; wearing a mask when out during high pollen count days can help. And of course avoiding any type of gardening or lawn mowing is highly recommended for some stuffy nose relief.
Medical solutions for pollen allergy such as tablets, shots or sprays are available from your doctor or pharmacist, however prolonged use of these is not always recommended; interactions with other medications are possible and over reliance on anti allergy drugs can weaken the immune system.
The ideal stuffy nose relief comes from SinuSet nasal filters: the filter made of a plastic arch covered by a medically proven filtering material, is easily inserted through the nostrils and provides a defense barrier which stops allergens from entering the nasal passages and prevent pollen allergy and the nuisance of a stuffy nose and sore eyes. They are very comfortable and fit into different size nostrils. The perfect solution for when seasonal allergies strike, allowing adults and children to enjoy stepping out in the fresh air.
