HEALTH: Warm weather, strong winds create a 'perfect allergy storm'

Allergies, however, may note sneezing, dripping noses, itchy hives and an increased cough, with unlimited mucous, and hang around for a month. Offenberger recommended over-the-counter antihistamines such as Claritin, Allegra or Zyrtec, or their generic

Put Down the Claritin and Try These 10 Natural Allergy Remedies Instead

Patio season is here—and if you’re one of the 25 percent of Canadians who suffers from allergies, so begins peak sneeze season…Cheers! Cue the tingly nose, watery eyes and itchy throat symptoms that you know better than your childhood bedroom.

Medications with largely unpronounceable ingredients aren’t the only course of action when symptoms strike: Natural sprays and vitamins are picking up the task of clearing sinuses and preventing the release of sniffle-inducing histamines. These remedies provide the same antihistamine benefits found in prescriptions, but generally take a bit longer to kick in.

“I think most people tend to go towards natural allergy solutions because they feel uncomfortable taking a synthetic medication that often,” says Dr. Tanya Lee, a naturopathic doctor in Toronto. Simple and severe sufferers can try a combo of natural products and dietary changes to adjust how their immune system responds to allergies. For mild allergies, Lee suggests incorporating more anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich foods and histamine-reducing nutrients like quercetin and nettle leaves. If your symptoms are more extreme, your gut might actually be the source of the summertime sneezes. In that case, a probiotic-rich diet is in order. As Lee explains, “What is in your gut tends to influence which way your immune system shifts—if it’s towards hypersensitivity or an allergic reaction, you can shift it back to [responding to] things your body would naturally react to.”

Question About AntiHistamine Side Effects of Diarrhea/Abdominal Pain (Claritin & Zyrtec)?

I have a chronic hives condition (called Cholinergic Urticaria).

I have taken Zyrtec before, and it provides a little relief from the itching and hives. However, I have recently noticed that it is causing me stomach pain and diarrhea.


Different antihistamines can give different side effects. Your best bet is to simply try it yourself to see if it causes you stomach pain.


Good luck.

Which is better for food allergies and eczema? Benadryl or Claritin?

I need to keep a box just in case I get an minor allergy to food (hives), or if I get an eczema episode because of external triggers (soaps, weather, etc.).

Of course I have creams for eczema, but my doctor suggested I use an anti-histamine


It sounds like you do not take antihistamine on a regular basis but only when you experience symptoms. In this case I would recommend Benadryl as it is a recommended drug for this. Personally, I carry the children's chewables with me just in case I


Benadryl is good to stop allergic reactions and has a long track record of safety.However it does cause drowsiness and can build up in the liver over time.Clariton is better for seasonal allergies.But avoidance is the best treatment for all allergies
