Tips for Dealing with Allergies to Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables:
The key to dealing with any allergy is prevention. At the first sign of an allergic reaction, it is important to get tested by an allergist. Immunotherapy and medications help alleviate symptoms and overcome many allergies. People who have a hereditary history of asthma and eczema also tend to be more susceptible to hay fever during this time. Symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever) include: sneezing, itchy or sore throat, itchy or watery eyes, runny or stuffy nose, fatigue, or trouble sleeping. Extreme allergic reactions include asthma and even anaphylaxis.
“You should seek treatment early in the season to prevent worse allergy attacks. It is important that those with allergies seek the assistance of an allergist,” said Dr. Michael P. Pacin of Florida Center For Allergy & Asthma Care. “There are many options for helping allergy sufferers, as well as simple steps people can take to avoid common allergens and help them enjoy the vibrancy of Spring.”
