Health Q & A with Jeannie Marr

Q: What can I use to treat my seasonal allergies?
A: There are lots of over-the-counter options available to treat allergies. The trick is to find the right product for your allergy symptoms and begin treatment before you start to experience them.
It is important to start early and get ahead of your symptoms. Nasacort and Flonase nasal sprays are now available without a prescription and are effective at treating inflammation involving the nose. They help decrease sneezing, runny nose and sinus pressure symptoms.
Oral antihistamines, such as Benadryl and Zyrtec, help by decreasing your body's response . . .
