Benadryl Ultratabs Antihistamine Allergy Medicine Tablets
Allergies 101Allergy sufferers have immune systems that mean well, but are a little over-reactive, releasing chemicals like histamine to get rid of normally harmless substances called allergens.
Histamine triggers the body to push the allergens out, using your nose, eyes, and mouth as exit routes, which creates inflammation and general allergy-related symptoms in the process.
Allergy SymptomsMost allergies are caused by something in the air we breathe. Common allergy symptoms include:◾Runny nose.
◾Itchy, watery eyes.
Allergy CausesAllergens cause allergies, and unfortunately, allergens are everywhere. Common allergens include pollen, dust mites, mold spores and pet dander. While there’s no way to completely eliminate allergens, knowing which ones affect you will help you reduce them.
Common allergies tend to fall into two categories: seasonal and year-round. To figure out when you’ll need relief most, check out our seasonal vs. year-round allergy guide.
Understanding Seasonal Allergies
Seasonal AllergiesThese allergies are triggered by mold spores, and pollens from trees, grass, and weeds, and often flare up seasonally.
Spring AllergiesMost pollen allergies in the spring come from trees, which can start pollinating as early as January depending on where you live.
Fall AllergiesRagweed is the main pollen nemesis in the fall, reaching peak level in September. Fall is also mold season. Mold develops on wet leaves and soil.
Summer AllergiesDry, hot days are not good for allergies. Pollen from grass is the main offender in the summer, and molds can grow quickly if you live where it gets hot and humid.
Winter AllergiesOutdoor pollen levels are usually low when it turns cold, but all that time spent indoors makes things worse if you have dust, mildew, or pet dander allergies.
Understanding Year-Round Allergies
Year-Round AllergiesThese allergies are triggered by dust mites, pet dander, mold, and mildew. Year-round allergens mostly flare up when you’re indoors.
Indoor AllergensYear-round allergies are always lurking, but tend to flare up during the winter. When it’s cold outside, you spend more time inside. Windows that are locked shut, fireplaces, and heating vents that are not fully cleaned create excess dust and poor overall indoor air quality.
Pet AllergiesPet dander allergens are year-round as well, and also tend to flare up during the winter months, when walks and trips outside get much shorter. Pets scatter their dander everywhere they go, and keeping your home as dander-free as possible can be a lot to keep up with.

6. Take off your shoesLeave your shoes at the front door to avoid tracking dust and other allergens into the home.

8. Chores, then out the doorDuring housework, wear a mask to protect yourself from allergens. Afterwards, leave the house to avoid allergens you may have stirred up.
4. Clear the moldIf you find mold on a hard surface, clean it up with water and detergent and let it air dry completely.
9. Dehumidify and cleanYou can reduce moisture in damp basements with dehumidifiers, but make sure to empty the water and keep units clean.

4. Clean the cageWaste is a source of allergens from rabbits, hamsters, mice, and guinea pigs. Cage cleaning should be done by a non-allergic family member.
2. Choose pets wiselyGet allergy testing done before you choose a pet if you think you have animal allergies.
