Autumn leaves. Summer Smog. Winter house dust. Spring pollens. For millions of Americans, each seasonal change brings about a unique set of allergy irritants and triggers. For those of us with common allergies and hay fever, these pollutants can bring on symptoms ranging from annoying, continuous postnasal drip to full-scale, sneezing, coughing-itchy-eyed allergy attacks. For those with more severe allergies – bee stings or allergic asthma – attacks can prove fatal.
Though life-threatening allergies are a matter of concern to immediately discuss with your physician, there are many home remedies for common allergies that can help alleviate your symptoms.
