Are you an allergy sufferer? If you are like me, then you’re probably seeking a way to solve your allergies without breaking your bank. This article will give you some helpful and affordable things you can do to help with your allergy symptoms.
The first thing you should do if you have health insurance is schedule an appointment with your doctor to discuss your allergies. Your doctor can prescribe allergy medications that may be stronger than over the counter products. They can also schedule you a time to come back and get tested for allergies to see exactly what you’re allergic to. Your doctor may also give you some tips on how to manage your allergies and how to live with them. So if you do have health insurance a visit to your doctor is a very good idea and is very affordable.
If you don’t have health insurance and you can’t afford to pay for a doctor visit out of your pocket, then over the counter products should be your choice of action. Over the counter products are much cheaper than having to pay for a prescription without health insurance. There are many over the counter medications that you can try such as; Claritin, Zyrtec, and Allegra. Most people’s allergies will react differently to each medication so you may have to try them all until you find the one that works best for you. You can also consider talking to friends or co-workers to see what works best for them. But, always read the warning labels on over the counter allergy medications to find out about possible side effects.
If you can’t afford over the counter medications or you just don’t like taking them, you can try natural remedies to help relieve your allergy symptoms. Cleaning your house as much as possible is a good way to get of allergens in your home. Cleaning your home often will prevent dust from gathering. If you have mold in your home, you should hire a professional mold remover to remove the mold. For some people, once the mold is gone their allergy symptoms disappear too.
If you have pets and you’re allergic to their hair and dander, you can try to limit your exposure to them. For most people limiting their expose to their own family pets is harder said than done. Since limiting your exposure may not be an option, you should make sure to clean your furniture and vacuum often to make sure pet hair and dander is not gathering.
Some people believe that Green Tea is a good natural remedy for allergy symptoms. Some teas contain natural antihistamines and that would help greatly with your allergies. Tea is also known for the calming effect it has on the body. If you’re stressing out about your allergy symptoms, sitting down with a hot cup of tea may just help you relax a little.
Everybody’s body is different, allergy sufferers have different symptoms and many things in our environment cause people to have allergies. If you suffer from allergies and you are looking for affordable relief you should try the approaches mentioned in this article until you find something that works best for your body.
