Spring Allergies in Naperville

Spring is in the air and it may cause you to sneeze.

Itchy eyes, sneezing and a runny nose are the most common culprits of springtime allergies.

As mold and pollen numbers rise so does the likelyhood of allergies affecting you.

While it’s hard to stay inside when the weather is so nice, limiting your exposure to pollen can help reduce your symptoms.

And for the days that you need a little more help, there are plenty of medications available.

“There are a lot of allergy fighting medications available over the counter now a days and they are all equally as good,” said Dr. Riddhi Pakrasi an Internal Medical Physician at Edward Elmhurst Health.

 Taking a shower before bed can also help ease the symptoms of spring allergies.
