Aside from pets, children under the age of three can be are sensitive to many allergy causative factors that can trigger an allergic reaction. This is according to My Kid Stuff Allergies website, when they launched their information drive recently. The awareness blog was geared toward parents’ awareness on the possible allergens that their kids may have and what to do when there is allergic reaction.
Having an allergy attack is quite the hassle and it is also very uncomfortable to work around or even to relax when you are having an allergic reaction. It is hard enough having to walk around with your eyes watering but you also have to put up with sneezing a lot. Some allergic reactions do not cause watery eyes or runny noses but instead they affect your skin such as having a rash, hives or even covering you with insect bite-like blotches that are itchy and generally uncomfortable. At the worst instance, allergies can cause a sudden rise in blood pressure, constriction of your airways and even the death of your blood cells leading to an incredibly fatal situation.
Although not all allergy medications are available over the counter, some, however, can be easily procured even without doctor’s prescription. The most common two kinds of over the counter, non drowsy allergy medications are antihistamines and decongestants. Over the counter drugs can act as first aid in more severe cases especially if you are far from a hospital and is in an emergency situation. Over the counter drugs can also give immediate relief for mild symptoms of allergies.
