10 ways to fight springtime allergies

As much of the U.S. thaws out from a choppy winter, allergy sufferers may not be thrilled that spring is in the air.

When the flowers bloom and the bikes come out, 35 million people in the U.S. have to deal with seasonal allergies.

The most common ones result from:

  • Grass pollen
  • Tree pollen
  • Mold spores
  • Dust mites

This infographic says that if both parents have allergies, children have a 75 to 80 percent likelihood that they will also be affected by this condition. Educate patients about how to relieve symptoms such as runny noses, itchy eyes and coughing. Showering on peak allergy days, washing pets and laundry often and even staying away from hairspray can help.

Take a look.
