Infection, Sickness or Allergy?
Many people in this area of Texas are allergic to the pollens in the air.
Some may think they are suffering from an infection or some sort of sickness, but are really just having an allergic response.
Common symptoms include: itchy, watery eyes; clear, runny nose; or a feeling of fullness in your ears or sinuses.
To combat these symptoms you can take a variety of antihistamines available at any pharmacy according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Check with you primary care provider first to make sure it is safe for you to take these medications.
Take care of your body, my friends! It’s the only one you get!
