Spring Into Wellness: Managing Allergies

As the first day of spring approaches, so does the season of renewal and rejuvenation. However, for many individuals, springtime also brings the dreaded onset of allergies. At T&F Pharmacies, we understand the challenges that allergies can present, and we’re here to provide solutions to help you navigate this seasonal shift. Let’s explore common allergy symptoms and highlight some essential medications and remedies available at our pharmacy locations.


Understanding Allergies


Spring allergies, also known as seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever, are typically triggered by pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds. Common symptoms include:

  1. Sneezing
  2. Runny or stuffy nose
  3. Itchy or watery eyes
  4. Scratchy throat
  5. Coughing
  6. Fatigue

Vitamins for Immune Support


Maintaining a strong immune system is crucial, especially during allergy season. Certain vitamins and supplements can help support your immune health and alleviate allergy symptoms. Consider incorporating the following into your daily routine:

  1. Vitamin C: Known for its antioxidant properties, vitamin C can help reduce inflammation and support immune function.
  2. Vitamin D: Adequate levels of vitamin D have been linked to improved immune function and reduced risk of allergic diseases.
  3. Quercetin: This plant-derived flavonoid acts as a natural antihistamine and may help alleviate allergy symptoms.

Eye Drops for Relief

For individuals experiencing itchy, red, or irritated eyes due to allergies, eye drops can provide quick and effective relief. Antihistamine eye drops help alleviate itching and redness by blocking histamine receptors in the eyes. Other types of eye drops may help lubricate the eyes and wash away allergens, providing soothing comfort.
