Allergy Season is Upon Us

By April 27, 2009

Follow me on:

With all the spring pollen responsible for the urge to scratch my contacts out of my eyeballs and take double the suggested dose of pseudoephedrine, (do not try this at home), I thought I'd brush up on the latest research. Much to my dismay I quickly came across an article in the Wiley Interscience Journal boasting the complications that result from untreated allergic rhinitis. According to the article it can cause decreased mental functioning, (I can definitely attest to this), abnormal sleep and activity levels, ear infections, sinusitis, and asthma. It's too bad my mental function isn't better, I might be smart enough to see an Allergist.

My son is struggling with his allergies and has been for the last week or so. Being a hypochondriac, he was convinced he had H1N1…finally convinced him it was his allergies.
