Can you feel it? Allergy season is here, which means you’re likely to hear a lot more sneezing outside in the Twin Cities. We want you to breathe easy in the coming months, so we sought out an allergist to educate us on what we are doing right and wrong when it comes to allergies.
Forty percent of us suffer from some kind of seasonal allergies. But the best relief – allergy shots injected monthly or even weekly – can be painful. But Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration will consider approving an allergy tablet that gives the same kind of help, but without the pain. After years of suffering, Kris Phillips needs a weekly trip to the doctor to get relief. “My allergies are under control,” Phillips said. “I can sleep through the night and not get up 10 different times because I can’t breathe.”
As any allergy sufferer knows, the sneezing, sniffling and watery eyes caused by pollen allergies is often times simply too much to bear.
