Your Riverside Village Pharmacy Can Help You with Allergy Symptoms

Updated: Jun 15

Spring has sprung! The first day of Spring is March 20, 2022. This new season brings about many changes across most regions of the United States. Warmer temperatures, rainy days, and flowers in bloom are among the many natural changes associated with spring. Many people also look forward to the longer daylight hours. While spring brings thoughts of pleasantries, more than half of the US population contends with the start of the Allergy Season.


Better Understand Your Seasonal Allergies

As the weather changes from Winter into Spring, plants begin to launch their seeds and bloom, creating more pollen. When your immune system comes in contact with high levels of allergens, many different allergy symptoms develop, including:

  • Runny nose

  • Watery eyes

  • Coughing

  • Sneezing

  • Throat irritation

  • 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

Your Riverside Village Pharmacy Pharmacist Can Help With Your Allergy Symptoms

Our Pharmacists at Riverside Village Pharmacy offer Seasonal Allergy Consultations. These sessions are designed to help identify your allergy triggers and what you can do to allay your symptoms. Some important things to remember as you get ready for your Seasonal Allergy Consultation session are:

  • Make a note of your allergy symptoms

  • Jot down when you experience your allergies the most

  • Where are your allergies being triggered (indoor vs. outdoors)

Is it COVID-19 or Allergies?

The past few months have seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. While the numbers are 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.
