Many times people take medicine that is not made to relieve the symptoms that they are having and then wonder why it is not working. In addition to traditional medicine you may also want to consider using some alternative options.

Numerous studies have shown that these less traditional options yield favorable results.
Stay Indoors to Relieve Allergies
When you are struggling with allergies you will want to stay indoors as much as possible. The dust and pollen outside are causing your allergies to flare up. Taking yourself away from the dust and pollen will help reduce your symptoms. You will also want to do your best to keep your windows and doors closed as much as possible. Keeping your home clean will also help reduce your allergy symptoms. Dust and pollen find their way into your home as your doors open and close. They are also tracked into your home on your clothes and shoes. Regularly vacuuming and dusting your home will both prove helpful in your fight against allergies.
