Although most of us wait on bated breath for the spring season to arrive, bringing warmth, removal of layers, and an overall change in disposition, there also comes some downside. For those of us who suffer from moderate to severe allergies, we know this downside all too well. As a severe allergy sufferer, and asthmatic, I love New York City in the springtime, but not what usually comes with it. The change in temperature and high pollen count means morning headaches, stuffed noses and overall discomfort. That’s why, when the weather recently changed, I put away my winter jacket, and headed right over to Duane Reade to pick up some of that seasonal allergy relief.

Medicine in the form of pills, nasal spray, saline, and even a humidifier or purifier can help tremendously to reduce pain, and provide some comfort during allergy season.

 The Spring and summer season brings sunshine, flowers and bees abound. But those very things that scream sunshine unfortunately also deliver high pollen counts and allergy prone weather. Take Claritin for daily relief of allergies during the high season.

Allergy Essentials for the season can include a powerful pill, like Claritin, a nasal spray, vapor inhaler and even saline washes that work like netti pots. And of course, tissues on hand are a must. The Duane Reade brand Nice! provides affordability and comfort.
