Health: Relief from Allergies

 Spring can mean allergy season in Austin, TX.
So I brushed up on what allergy medication to use for what symptoms.
.Austin is beautiful but I call it the Allergy Capital of Texas for a reason. From cedar fever, hay fever, to just nasal funk I deal with it several months a year. Of course your doctor will make the diagnosis and some of these recommendations below are RX only.

You should take:
Nasal steroids, Rhinocort, Flonase, Nasonex,
