BREATHE EASY THIS SEASON -- SURVIVAL TIPS FOR ALLERGY SUFFERERS

BREATHE EASY THIS SEASON -- SURVIVAL TIPS FOR ALLERGY SUFFERERS
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- There is no escaping allergies and there is no cure. But don't lose hope. If you struggle with the seasonal onslaught of a runny nose, itching eyes, scratchy throat and sneezing fits, here are a few sniffle-sparing tips to make you breathe easier this season.
 -- Limit early morning activities. Pollen levels are highest in the first hours of the day, so try taking your power walk in the afternoon instead of first thing in the morning.
 -- Prevention is the best medicine. You can't escape nature's course. But you can use the simple, effective over-the-counter allergy symptom relievers available. Plan to use an antihistamine about 30 minutes before going outdoors. An antihistamine will prevent the symptoms from occurring, but should be taken prior to exposure to allergens.
 -- Soothe the itch! For relief of red, itchy, burning eyes caused by allergies, try using over-the-counter eye drops made specifically for allergies, such as Bausch & Lomb(R) Maximum Strength Allergy Drops. It offers the highest concentration of redness-relieving naphazoline available without a prescription and contains a lubricant to soothe the eyes. Eye drops that simply remove the red may make the eye look better, but won't relieve the irritation.
 -- Stay cool. Air-conditioning is one of the easiest ways to escape the outdoor over-load of allergens. A simple window-unit in one room of your house can provide a refuge of clean, cool, dry air. If you're in your car -- keep those windows up.
 -- Know your enemy! Pollens and plants can vary greatly -- size, blooming schedule, and season can all have a great effect on allergy sufferers. Make sure you ask your local nursery about the effect certain plants may have on allergies before planning your garden.
