Medicate! These medications can help ease some of the discomfort when it’s necessary to be in areas with high pollen counts:
Immunotherapy can be a last resort when more common medications fail to sufficiently alleviate the pain.

Find out what works best for you. Allergies are different for each person, so there’s no one cure that is guaranteed to work for everyone. Figure out what combination of tactics is most effective for your own unique set of allergies.
