Pollen

Pollen is a powdery particle that flowering plants, trees, grass and weeds release to help fertilize other plants of the same species. It travels by floating through the air, but when it lands on surfaces it appears as a fine yellow dust. If you have a pollen allergy, your immune system thinks pollen is a dangerous intruder. It produces chemicals to fight off the pollen, and you experience an allergic reaction.

Sneezing, congestion and puffy eyes are just a few of the symptoms people with pollen allergies may have. Medications can help you manage a pollen allergy. When histamine, a chemical created by your immune system, overreacts to an allergen such as pollen and pet dander, it can cause symptoms such as coughing, sneezing and watery eyes. Antihistamines are medications that help with allergies, and also with stomach problems, cold, anxiety and more.

Some of the common side effects of first-generation antihistamines include:Drowsiness. Dry mouth, dry eyes.Blurred or double vision. Dizziness and headache. Low blood pressure. Mucous thickening in the airways. Rapid heart rate. Difficulty urinating and constipation. Do not forget dry mouth encourages bacteria to grow faster in mouth. Please drink plenty of water and carry on brushing your teeth, flossing using mouth wash in between meals.
