Your Savco Pharmacy Can Help You with Allergy Symptoms
Updated: Jun 14, 2022
We have entered Spring! This new season brings about many changes across most regions of the United States. Warmer temperatures, rainy days, and flowers in bloom are among the many natural changes associated with spring. Many people also look forward to the longer daylight hours. While spring brings thoughts of pleasantries, more than half of the US population contends with the start of the Allergy Season. But Savco Pharmacy is here to help!
Understanding Seasonal Allergies
As the season changes from Winter into Spring, plants begin to launch their seeds and bloom. Increased plant and tree activity brings about a rise in pollen which triggers a cascade of events in the body. When your immune system comes in contact with high levels of allergens, many different allergy symptoms develop, including:
Increased mucus production
Reducing Your Seasonal Allergies
There are several tactics that are effective in reducing allergy symptoms. These include:
Getting help with OTC products from your Neighborhood Pharmacist
Washing clothing and linens in hot water
Wearing a mask over the nose & mouth while dusting and cleaning

Is it COVID-19 or Allergies?
The past few months have seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. While the numbers are declining, it’s still important to remember COVID is not entirely removed from our lives just yet. Since some COVID symptoms and allergy symptoms do overlap, it’s critical to know when to see a healthcare professional.
Unlike allergy sufferers, COVID often presents with fever and body aches. The diagram provided below helps clear up some confusion between COVID-19 and allergies.
