Allergies

Take a Deep Breath Outdoors

Allergy reactions often strike at the most inopportune times. Knowing what can cause a reaction, employing preventative measures and having treatments on hand specific to your needs can help ensure you and your family continue to live every day to its fullest.

When an allergen has entered the body, the body defends itself by releasing a chemical called histamine, which can result in common reactions like sneezing, a runny nose, watery eyes, or in more severe cases - hives, difficulty breathing and anaphylaxis. Allergies can be seasonal, or an allergic reaction can also happen year-round, depending on its cause.
