What's Going Around

Nurse Practitioner Linda Eckerson at McLaren Greater Lansing-DeWitt Family Medicine is treating patients with asthma and allergies this week.

Symptoms are: sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, dark circles under the eyes, itchy throat, wheezing, coughing and difficulty breathing.

Talk to your doctor about the best way to treat your allergies. You may need prescription nasal sprays.

Over-the-counter antihistamines, decongestants, eye drops and cool compresses may help.

To minimize your allergies, pay attention to the pollen count and stay inside when it's high. Use your air conditioning as much as possible, and avoid sleeping with the windows open.
