Your DSD Pharmacy Can Help You with Allergy Symptoms
Spring has sprung! This new season brings about many changes across most regions of the United States. Warmer temperatures, rainy days, and flowers in bloom are among the many natural changes associated with spring. While spring brings thoughts of pleasantries, more than half of the US population contends with the start of the Allergy Season.
Understanding Seasonal Allergies: What Are the Symptoms?
As the weather changes from Winter into Spring, plants begin to launch their seeds and bloom. When your immune system comes in contact with high levels of allergens, many different allergy symptoms develop, including:
Increased mucus production
Stop Struggling With Seasonal Allergies
There are several tactics that are effective in reducing allergy symptoms. These include:
Getting help with over-the-counter 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. Even though the numbers are starting to decline, it’s essential to remember COVID 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 doctor.
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.
