Below is a list of 6 items that should be included in your allergy relief kit.
1. Eye Drops
Eye drops can ease the inflammation, itching, tearing, and swelling in your eyes. It may be beneficial to ask your doctor which kind of eye drop is right for you. This can serve as a great allergy relief.
2. Decongestants and Nasal Sprays
During an allergic reaction, nasal tissues can swell so decongestants can help with allergy relief as it reduces stuffiness and congestion. Decongestants are available over the counter as pills. Decongestants also come as nasal sprays.
Antihistamine pills can provide quick and powerful allergy relief for your symptoms, including sneezing, runny nose, and itchy/watery eyes.
Allergies can often affect asthma so if you have asthma then your kit should have an inhaler. Short-acting inhaler medications are available by prescriptions and can provide relief for your asthma attacks.
5. Injectable Epinephrine
If you are at risk for severe or life-threatening allergic reaction, your allergy kit should have injectable epinephrine. Epinephrine is a class of medication that works by relaxing the muscles in the airways and tightening the blood vessels.
6. Skin Creams and Lotions
For allergic skin reactions, lotion can help to soothe the dry itchy feeling and hydrocortisone cream can ease the inflammation.
