Allergy Basics: Prevention and Relief

Could allergies be to blame for your runny nose and sneezing?  The symptoms of allergies and the common cold are very similar, which can make it difficult to tell the difference between the two.  

Allergies are a common chronic health condition. Symptoms can be mild or severe, and some allergies can even put you at risk for life-threatening reactions. About 75% of people with seasonal allergies, especially in the Midwest, are allergic to ragweed, which pollinates from mid-August to the end of September. 

Use this handy guide to brush up on your knowledge of allergies and learn some great tips for prevention and relief of your allergy symptoms.

If you have questions about symptoms you are experiencing, be sure to talk with your health care provider.
