Outdoor allergies are nothing to sneeze at, and it looks like this season could be one for the record books. Tree pollen is at its worst right now. Then there’s the grass pollen to contend with until June. Some parts of the country are faring worse than others, particularly the South Atlantic and mid-Atlantic regions. How about the pollen counts in your own area? The website, pollen.com, has a handy allergy alert that can give you your city’s current level. Today’s count for Newtown Square, PA, where Boiron’s headquarters are located, is a 9.1 out of scale of 12! That means we are seeing a lot of sniffling, sneezing, runny noses and watery eyes in our own backyard.
Statistics show that approximately 40 million people in the U.S. have some type of outdoor allergy so it’s likely you or a loved one are feeling the effects. While there is no cure for allergies, you can treat them with homeopathic medicines. Consider Boiron AllergyCalm. It contains a blend of homeopathic medicines that address various allergy-related problems, including hay fever and other upper respiratory symptoms, such as itchy and runny nose, sneezing, and itchy and watery eyes.* We have it available in a kids formula for children 2 years of age and older. And the good news is that it won't cause drowsiness or drug interactions.
