At Mountainside Medical Equipment we like to make sure our customers are stocked up and prepared to tackle even the worst case of allergies. From itchy, watery eyes to a runny nose, we have all your symptoms covered that you can fight back against allergies this season.
During the summer season sometimes just going outside for a walk can be a struggle. You want to enjoy the sun and fresh air that you have been waiting all winter for but the frustration of allergies could leave you feeling defeated.
Loratadine Non-Drowsy Allergy Medicine gives 24-hour relief from the symptoms of seasonal allergies without the drowsy side effect. This antihistamine is also unlike others because it's recommended for both adults and children 6 and up which makes it a great option for the whole family.
When you're outdoors in the warm weather, there are any number of irritations that your skin could endure: poison ivy, poison oak, insect bites and more. That's when you reach for an antihistamine in a topical spray. Diphenhydramine Pain Relief Spray provides immediate, temporary relief to the discomfort caused by insect bites and poison plants, and will help prevent infections when used on an open wound. Make sure you have it whenever you're enjoying the summer weather!
Summer Allergy Eye Relief
Now it's time to address those irritated, watery, itchy eyes. Even though Loratadine can help with this side effect of hay fever and allergies, here are some products specifically for the itchy eye sufferer.
Eyesaline Eye Wash provides comfort to irritated eyes that will get you through the day. These eye drops will alleviate redness, irritation and discomfort while lubricating dry eyes. When your eyes need maximum relief, these lubricating eye drops will moisturize while relieving itchiness and redness.
Tip for for those who wear contacts: Be sure to use daily disposable contacts or take into consideration wearing eyeglasses during allergy seasons. Contacts are great at attracting allergens and leading to a build up of them. If you have a regular contacts that you wear daily, be sure to clean them regularly with a preservative-free solution.
Decongestants work at eliminating symptoms of irritated eyes as well. Decongestants help bring down the swelling in swollen nasal passages and also shrink blood vessels on the white of the eye, reducing redness.
Antihistamines work at blocking histamines which the body releases as an allergic response, in turn dilating the blood vessels. Histamines are what cause you to have irritated eyes.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) reduce inflammation and are also beneficial for relieving puffy irritated eyes.
