Health Tip: Got Hay Fever?

(HealthDay News) -- Hay fever causes allergy symptoms like itchy eyes and ears, runny nose, cough and sneezing.

The American Lung Association offers these suggestions on how to deal with these complaints:
When pollen counts are high, keep windows closed.

During the warm days of summer, run the air conditioning to limit the allergens coming into your home.

Use an air purifying device in the home.

If you have to work outdoors, wear a dust mask to avoid breathing in allergens.

Antihistamines or decongestants may help relieve symptoms.

Inhaled steroids or allergy shots may also reduce symptoms, but must be prescribed by a doctor.

Avoid using nasal sprays, as they can dry the nasal passages and eventually make allergy symptoms worse.
