It’s officially the spring season! Unfortunately, this also means that allergy season is upon us, as well. Plants that have been dormant for months (or even since last spring!) are finally popping up and releasing all their pollen. While they might be beautiful, they can cause some uncomfortable allergies. Along with flowers, trees, grasses, weeds and other plants release their pollen into the air in order to fertilize and multiply. Some people (millions, actually) mistake this pollen as a danger, and their systems release antibodies to attack the allergens. This leads to the release of histamines in the bloodstream, which causes itchy eyes, runny noses, coughing, rashes and all the other classic allergy symptoms people experience. Indoor allergies ramp up as well, since the pollen that sticks to our skin gets inside our homes, pets are shedding and more. Hypoallergenic products are more important now than ever. While there is no cure for springtime allergies, there are simple things you can do in your own home to help curb uncomfortable springtime allergy symptoms. So before spring has sprung along with all of it’s allergies, make sure you have what you need to protect you and your family this allergy season.
