Dr Oz: Allergy Drugs Reviewed
This year could be the worst allergy season any of us has ever seen. Allergist Dr. Clifford Bassett helped Dr. Oz and the audience prepare for the height of Spring Allergy Season.
If you are looking for a cure or relief from your persistent allergy symptoms, here are a few treatments that were discussed on the show.
Dr Oz: Pataday Eye Drops Review
A product called Pataday Eye Drops works by releasing an antihistamine to sooth your watery, itchy eyes. The recommended treatment is one drop in each eye, as needed. You can also wear sunglasses for additional protection from Pollen.
Dr Oz: Patanase Review for Allergies
Have you ever tried a nose spray? They can be strange at first, but sometimes they can really help you get relief.
On today’s show, Dr. Oz and Dr. Clifford Bassett discussed Patanase, a once daily nasal spray that can fight your stuffy nose.
Dr Oz: Nasonex Review for Allergies
Another way to approach your stuffy nose is with Nasonex. Think of the cartoon bee, which proves that annoying commercial gimmicks are effective for getting consumers to remember products.
Nasonex is another once-a-day nasal spray, taken as needed for nasal congestion.
Dr Oz: Zyrtec Review
Zyrtec is an antihistamine, which can help keep Pollen from upsetting your allergy symptoms. You can get it as a capsule or a liquid, and it might even help you relax. The typical dosage is 10 mg daily.
Dr Oz: Claritin Review
Claritin is a common over the counter allergy medicine, a pill that fights common symptoms. The dosage for Claritin is usually 5 mg each day.
Dr Oz: Saline Remedy for Allergies
You can use Saline Spray to quickly clear up those persistent sneezing fits associated with allergies. It’s safe for kids, and most sprays aren’t medicated, so you can use them as often as you need to.
Doctor Oz: Baby Shampoo for Allergies
Baby Shampoo is often advertised as having a no tears formula, so young ones don’t get upset if shampoo gets in their eyes. You can actually use it for allergy relief because it can irrigate your eyelids and help clear out any pollen that’s built up there.
Dr Oz: Can A Hat Prevent Allergy Symptoms?
Though hats may be fashionable (Victoria Beckham) or iconic (Aretha Franklin), Dr. Bassett said they can actually help you cure your allergy affected nose. Wearing a hat can actually prevent pollen from getting in your face, and collecting in your nose or eyes.
On the other hand, he suggested avoiding hair gels, which actually attract pollen to you. You can also wash your hair at night to make sure you get all the pollen out before you climb into bed.
Dr Oz: Allergy Shots Long Term Relief
Allergy shots are another form of prevention, according to Doctor Oz. Dr. Bassett said that up to 90% of people can see long term benefits from these types of shots.
Would you try an allergy shot, or do you prefer another remedy for your symptoms?
