Pollen Allergies

Even though most people are usually quite excited about the prospect of springtime approaching, many others unfortunately cringe at the thought since that means there will be excessive amounts of pollen in the air. Pollen are the yellow-green particles that you see coating your car and floating off of the trees when the wind blows. They are very small round or oval grains produced by plants for reproduction purposes. While they are naturally light enough so that they can easily blow in the wind and transport themselves on clothing and animal hair, it is this natural ability to go airborne that also reeks havoc on people with pollen allergies.

Some of the most commonly produced types of pollen that are usually related to causing allergic reactions are produced by the plain-looking plants (trees, grasses, and weeds) that do not have showy flowers. Understanding this can provide some immense help in deciding which plants to feature in your garden and landscaping, helping you to significantly reduce the chances of suffering from an allergic reaction while still being able to enjoy the beauty of flowers.

And because you of course do not want to have to hide indoors all season long you can take advantage of some simple solutions. For example, Sudafed PE is a popular allergy medicine that provides good results without making you drowsy. It can alleviate sinus pressure and nasal congestion and is even offered in a version that provides headache relief. Sudafed PE is less expensive than Claritin and is a good choice for those on a budget.
