I am an allergy sufferer.
Spring might have been my favorite time of the year had it not been the season of sneezing, watery, itchy eyes (which turn to dry itchy eyes at night), coughs, and itchy throats.
To manage my allergies, I have tried:
- • prescription and non-prescription allergy medicines
- • closing the windows and using the air conditioning all Spring and Summer
- • drinking more water
- • stocking up on lots and lots of tissues
- • avoiding the outdoors
- • watching the forecast
- • cleaning my house more often
- • using vacuum cleaners with better filters
- • and crying. Yes, sometimes that’s all I can do to manage my allergies
In fact, I have blogged about my allergy woes a few times in the past, and was recently contacted by HALLS® to try a new allergy management step. Halls sent me two different varieties of their cough drops to add to my daily allergy treatment regimen.
Here’s what their website about using HALLS® alongside your allergy medicine: “During allergy season, inhaled irritants like pollen, grass and trees can trigger irritating coughs and scratchy, sore throats. While allergy medication provides the all-day relief you need, HALLS® helps out as a complement to your allergy regimen. HALLS® starts working within 10 seconds to soothe your allergy related cough and sore throat.”
How did it work for me? Well, I take my allergy medicine with breakfast every morning, and sometimes the morning can be the toughest time of the day for me, with windows open and the fresh morning breeze coming in. And plenty of allergens to make my nose go crazy. I really did notice a difference when I popped a Halls cough drop in my mouth. My nose immediately cleared up with the soothing menthol, and I loved feeling the instant relief. It made my morning go just a little bit more smoothly.
