Allergy Over the Counter Medication

Allergies are common, and happen when our immune system reacts to a typically neutral substance (an allergen). Symptoms include itchiness in the eyes or skin, sneezing, nasal congestion, rashes, fatigue or feeling ill. Major types of allergies are seasonal allergies from grass or pollen, animal allergies from cat and dog dander, and food allergies.

Allergy and Sinus

Sinus problems can be related to allergies because when the nose is swollen from allergies, the sinus passages can be blocked. We have 8 sinus cavities (hollow air spaces within our bones): behind the eyes, the cheekbones, in the forehead, and the nose. One function is to produce mucus, which helps protect against dust, allergens or outside agents. Sinus congestion can be alleviated with such medications as Zyrtec or Strepsils. Canadian Pharmacy Meds offers trusted allergy medication such as Benadryl, Reactine and Claritin for symptom relief.
