Are Winter Allergies Really a Thing?
Yes! Winter allergies do exist. While you mostly hear people complain about spring allergies that are caused by pollen from blooming plants, grasses, and weeds, some people are more sensitive to allergens that are more common in the winter months.
During the winter, we typically spend more time indoors. We close the windows and keep entrances tightly sealed to keep in the warm air being created by our heating systems. And, while this may save you money on your energy bill, you may also be trapping allergens in your house. Allergens may even be getting cycled through your heating system, so when that warm air comes out, it’s also spreading around the things that make you sneeze and cough.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Winter Allergies?
If you suffer from winter allergies, chances are you’re allergic to dust mites, pet dander, mold, or even cockroach droppings. If you only experience allergies around the Christmas season, you may have an allergy to pine trees. However, most winter allergies are caused by the first list of items we mentioned.
When we lock up our homes tight to keep the warm air in and the cold air out, we also trap all of these allergens in our homes. You may be able to find some relief by using HEPA filters and frequently vacuuming and cleaning furniture that might be hanging on to the allergens.
What Are the Symptoms of Winter Allergies?
The symptoms of winter allergies are very similar to the symptoms that we experience from spring allergies. This is because, while the allergens may be different, the reaction produced by our bodies is the same.
Winter allergy symptoms can include:
- Runny nose
- Itchy, red eyes
- Watery eyes
- Postnasal drip
- Itchy throat
How Can I Treat Winter Allergies?
You will surely find your fair share of allergy medications at the drug store and you may even decide to have your doctor prescribe you something a bit stronger. However, many allergy medications only treat the symptoms rather than addressing the source of the problem. And while this is the way that many of us have learned to manage our allergy symptoms, there is another way — Allergena homeopathic allergy relief drops. Read on to learn more about the different options for treating your winter allergies and when you’re ready to find real relief, shop Allergena.
Over-the-Counter Allergy Medication
There are plenty of over-the-counter allergy medications available at your local drug store. And while some people find relief with these items, many times they cause side effects like drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, confusion, and dry mouth that can be even worse to deal with than your allergy symptoms.
Prescription Allergy Medication
Prescription allergy medication often contains the same active ingredients as the over-the-counter options, they just come in stronger doses. Therefore, they can cause the same types of side effects. Allergy medication may help some people find relief, but it only works to manage the symptoms rather than treat the source.
Cleaning and Allergy Prevention
If you suspect that you are suffering from winter allergies, one of the best things that you can do is to try to remove or minimize the allergen in your home. You can do this by cleaning more frequently, taking your pet for routine grooming, and installing a HEPA air filter. These types of solutions may help to alleviate some of your allergy symptoms by removing the allergen from your home and reducing your exposure rather than treating the medical condition.
