In Okemos, Dr. Dennis Perry at Meridian Primary Care, a partner of McLaren-Greater Lansing, is treating seasonal allergies.
Symptoms include: runny, stuffy nose; itchy nose, eyes or throat; sneezing; sinus pressure, and tearing at the eyes.
Antihistamines are usually the first line of treatment.
You can use saline sprays two to three times a day to wash away dust, pollen and other allergens.
Depending on the severity of your allergies, you may benefit from steroid nasal sprays.
If you have asthma, Dr. Perry says it is important to stick to your prescribed treatment regimen.
