Your Patton Pharmacy V & S Variety Can Help You with Allergy Symptoms
Updated: Jun 14
Spring is here! This new season brings about many changes across most regions of the United States. While spring brings thoughts of pleasantries, more than half of the US population deals with the start of the Allergy Season.
Understanding Seasonal Allergies
As the weather changes, plants begin to launch their seeds and bloom. As plants bloom, we see an increase in pollen which triggers allergic reactions. When your immune system comes in contact with high levels of allergens, many different allergy symptoms develop, including:
Increased mucus production
Dealing with Seasonal Allergies
There are several tactics that are effective in reducing allergy symptoms. These include:
Getting help with OTC products from your Neighborhood Pharmacist
Washing clothing and linens in hot water
Wearing a mask over the nose & mouth while dusting and cleaning

Is it COVID-19 or Allergies?
While the numbers of COVID-19 are declining and starting to trend in the right direction, it’s essential to remember COVID is not entirely removed from our lives just yet. Since some COVID symptoms and allergy symptoms do overlap, it’s important to know when to see a healthcare professional.
Unlike allergy sufferers, COVID often presents with fever and body aches. The diagram provided below helps clear up some confusion between COVID-19 and allergies.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, call your local Patton Pharmacy V & S Variety to help discuss how we can help.
