|An allergy is an overreaction of the body’s immune system to normally harmless substances. Usually, the immune system protects your body by eliminating foreign substances (or allergens), such as bacteria or viruses. If you have seasonal allergies (also known as hay fever), your body overreacts to certain pollens when you are exposed to them.
Common seasonal allergy symptoms include:
Itchy & watery eyes
It’s sometimes difficult to predict how people with allergies will respond to different types of allergy medications. You may need to try several different formulations before you find the product or products that are best for you.Ask your PPN Pharmacist about better ways to summer!
