allergies make you grumpy

Good-bye Grumpy and Sleepy

If your allergies or asthma keep you from getting a great night’s sleep, you can’t be your very best.

You’re  just the grumpy and sleepy version of your best self.  When you put an Allergy Store mattress cover on your bed you will be protected from all those pesky allergens that tickle your nose, make you cough, and prevent you from getting the restful sleep your body needs.

You wake refreshed; ready to grab your coffee and go. No one will mistake you for a cartoon dwarf. They will just see the real you, the rested you, the better you.

Friends and co-workers will thank you.

So Long Shiners

Those dark circles under your eyes are the result of more than just missing a few z’s.  Allergists and immunologists refer to them as “allergic shiners”.

They are a result of the increased blood flow to the nasal and sinus area as a result of allergic reactions.  Those reactions can be triggered by the hordes of dust mites and other allergens in your mattress, pillows, and other bedding.

When you zip up your mattress in one of our mattress covers and seal up your pillows in our pillow covers you won’t spend all night breathing those allergens.

Decreased exposure results in decreased blood flow and the end result is an end to those allergic shiners.  The cosmetic company won’t be happy because you won’t be using so much concealer, but your true beauty will shine through – shiner free.

When you face the day with uncontrolled allergies you head out armed with a plethora of tissues and an emergency back-up hankie.  All in an effort to hold back the relentless tide of nasal discharge, watery eyes, and coughing that make you look a walking biological terrorist.  Those allergic shiners probably don’t help either (or the fact that your grumpy and sleepy).

Tired of explaining that you aren’t spreading plague but just have allergies?  Instead of defending your allergies, vanquish them.  Protect yourself with an Allergy Store mattress cover.  Put a protective barrier between you and the allergens that are determined to ruin your reputation.

Instead of drowning in a sea of snot each morning, awaken symptom free.  Leave the tissues for when you really have a cold.   Instead of getting the stink eye from fellow commuters and co-workers get smiles. People will appreciate the better you.

  • dust mites,

How to Treat Your Allergy Symptoms Part 1

For those of us that have allergies there are several options we have to help us deal with them. Today we are going to talk about how to treat your allergy symptoms with conventional treatments.

When we cannot adequately avoid airborne allergens, our symptoms often can be controlled with medication. Effective medications that can be prescribed by a doctor include antihistamines and topical nasal steroids either of which can be used alone or in combination.  Many over the counter (OTC) antihistamines and decongestants are effective and available at your local Walmart, CVS or Walgreens. Be prepared to show you ID.Treat Your Allergy Symptoms with Topical Nasal Spray

How to Treat Your Allergy Symptoms with Antihistamines

As the name indicates, an antihistamine counters the effects of histamine, which is released by the mast cells in the body’s tissues and contributes to allergy symptoms. For many years, antihistamines have proven useful in relieving sneezing and itching in the nose, throat, and eyes, and in reducing nasal swelling and drainage. Antihistamines will not help with congestion.  To relieve congestion, a decongestant is needed.

Many people who take antihistamine experience some distressing side effects: drowsiness and loss of alertness and coordination. In children, such reactions can be misinterpreted as behavior problems. During the last few years, however, antihistamines that cause fewer of these side effects have become available by prescription and over the counter. These non-sedating antihistamines are as effective as other antihistamines in preventing histamine-induced symptoms, but do so without causing sleepiness. Some of these non-sedating antihistamines, however, can have serious side effects, particularly if they are taken with certain other drugs.

It is not recommended that people with glaucoma or high blood pressure take certain antihistamines. Always let your doctor know what other medications you are taking.

How to Treat Your Allergy Symptoms with Topical Nasal Sprays

A topical nasal corticosteroid may be prescribed, especially for seasonal allergies.  This medication should not be confused with anabolic steroids, which are sometimes used by athletes to enlarge muscle mass and can have serious side effects.

Topical nasal corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory drugs that stop the allergic reaction. In addition to other beneficial actions, they reduce the number of mast cells in the nose and reduce mucus secretion and nasal swelling. The combination of antihistamines and nasal steroids is a very effective way to treat allergy symptoms, especially in people with moderate or severe allergic rhinitis. Although topical nasal steroids can have side effects, they are safe when used at recommended doses. Some of the newer agents are even safer than older ones.
