Health Hints

The mild winter we experienced could mean bad news for those who suffer from allergies. Check local weather sites on the internet to keep track of allergens and then take appropriate action. For example, if you are allergic to tree pollen, change your clothes and wash your hair – and your pets – after spending time outdoors, and remember to keep windows closed. Try over-the-counter medications for mild allergies or allergy shots for long-term relief of more serious allergies.
