Rite Aid just released a 16-page allergy guide intended to help allergy sufferers recognize their symptoms, avoid having an attack, and treat one when an attack happens. You can pick up a copy in the pharmacy section of Rite Aid, at the counter, or read the allergy guide online
I read the entire thing and found it very helpful in determining the difference between colds and acute sinusitis, which I get a lot. I know, TMI! The guide has:
- tips for avoiding pollen
- a list of unexpected foods that may contain common allergens
- tips to soothe dry skin
- how to watch our for eye allergies
- a chart that clarifies what is a cold and what is an allergy
There is also a list of what drugs Rite Aid sells that treat all of the allergies mentioned, surprise, surprise. Not that you need to rush out any buy a bunch of drugs to treat allergies. Decide what is best for you.
