As professionals in the allergy industry, we are asked a lot about how people who have horrible seasonal allergies can work to get rid of the symptoms that are constantly causing them issues. Believe us, we know how incredibly frustrating it can be to have a ton of symptoms that never truly seem to leave for nearly six months at a time. Of course, we believe that the best option for those who are seeking relief is one of our specially formulated allergy relief formulas. On the other hand, we do understand that some people want to fight the battle from multiple angles at the same time. In this post, we are going to talk a little bit about how your allergies evolve over time as well as what you can do in order to ensure that they are no longer as much of an issue as they currently are.

Why do your allergies change as you get older?
When you have an allergic reaction, it is essentially your immune system being a drama queen. Depending on the type of allergic reaction and what has caused it, a person’s response to the allergy will likely change over the years.
If someone is able to tolerate an allergen better later in life than when they were younger, this could mean that it was never a true allergy in the first place, or that the body has simply become desensitized over time.
The way our bodies react to allergens can also be impacted by certain changes in the environment that we are currently living in, as well as certain physiological changes that occur as we get older.
Are there certain foods that can make your allergies worse?
While this may not be what you want to hear, it has been shown that drinking alcohol can cause or worsen the common symptoms that come with asthma and hay fever. These are symptoms like sneezing, itching, headaches, and coughing just to name a few. The worsening of these symptoms occurs because the bacteria and yeast in alcohol produce histamines that can cause for any allergy symptoms to flare up. Therefore, we would suggest that those who suffer from seasonal allergies go easy on the happy hour drinks.
When is the best time to take allergy medication?
When it comes to all allergy medication, the very best time to take it is in the morning when you wake up. This is also true of our homeopathic allergy relief drops. Taking your medicine in the morning will help your body to defend itself against any allergens it may come into contact with throughout the day.
Can long-term use of allergy medication be harmful?
In nearly all cases, taking allergy medication for an extended period of time is not harmful. This is also true of Allergena products. On the other hand, it is important that you only use allergy relief products if they are being effective. If you are not getting relief or if your allergies get a lot worse over time, we would suggest that you see a physician.
