Spring is in the air, and that means allergies!!

Seasonal allergic rhinitis, commonly referred to as hay fever, affects many people.  Symptoms include sneezing, nasal congestion/stuffiness, a runny nose, sore or scratchy throat, and a dry cough that is worse at night when you lay down.  These symptoms are caused by pollen and mold spores in the air.  If you have a history of seasonal allergies, it's time to start your allergy medication.  Health Services has Zyrtec available for purchase - no appointment necessary.
