Hay fever and other allergies can be seriously uncomfortable, or even life-threatening when allergic reactions are at their worst.
If you’re allergic to something (for example, pollen, pet hair, dust, or certain foods) then your body will react when you come into contact with it, releasing hormones that cause your allergy symptoms. Even if your allergy isn’t severe, it will leave you with irritating symptoms like sneezing, coughing, rashes, and itchy, watery eyes.
Remember, your final treatment will be decided by our prescribers based on your answers provided within your consultation. You will be asked to indicate a preferred treatment option from a selected list after completion of your consult.
If over the counter remedies don’t help to relieve your allergy symptoms, a prescription treatment could help to keep your reactions under control.
Antihistamines work by blocking the histamine that’s created by your body when you have an allergic reaction.
This keeps it from coming into contact with your eyes, nose, throat, and other areas, relieving your symptoms by getting right to the source.
When antihistamines were first developed they would often make you feel drowsy, which made them great for bedtime but wasn’t always the best choice during high pollen count days.
Nowadays, antihistamines have evolved to include non-drowsy alternatives which work well alongside other medications which target specific symptoms.
Other popular remedies include corticosteroid sprays for blocked noses, itchy eye drops, and creams for itchy rashes.
Start a consultation with one of our prescribers and after a quick questionnaire, they’ll be able to determine whether a prescription allergy treatment would be right for you and get it sent to you quickly and discreetly.
