Spring allergy season has hit early this year. I’ve already seen a lot of patients with symptoms from pollen. They have what is called Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis.
If you have lived in Georgia for any length of time you probably know what this is: runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, congestion, itching eyes, cough and sometimes fatigue and irritability.
Seasonal allergies are prevalent in Georgia mainly because the pollen counts are so high from hardwoods in the Spring and grasses and weeds in the Summer and Fall.
If you struggle with seasonal allergies, there are a few things you can try before you go to the doctor.
If these remedies don’t give you relief then a visit to your doctor can help because something else may be causing your symptoms like an infection or other non-allergic causes.
