vital: ask the Doc.
A PREVENTION is better so, firstly, avoid places with a high pollen count and keep windows and doors closed at problem times. Try non-tablet treatments first, for example, nasal sprays and eye drops.
If you decide to take oral antihistamines, take the lowest dose for the shortest time.
Cetirizine or loratadine are the best for breastfeeding women, ask your pharmacist for advice.
Q WHAT can I do about my smelly feet?
A FEET smell because they sweat and the sweat soaks into your socks and shoes, breeding smelly bacteria.
Wash your feet every day with soap. Dry your feet thoroughly, especially between the toes, to reduce the likelihood of athlete's foot. Wear clean socks each day (preferably not nylon). Rotate your shoes so you are not wearing the same pair every day.
