I had thought that I was going to escape the allergy season this year. In the past, I had been getting signs of allergies in March and dealing with them all the way into June. My husband had gotten all of the symptoms, headache, runny nose, itchy eyes and miserable. My daughter had the same including snoring all night long from blocked nasal passages. I had been clear and free.....up until May 5th!

On May 5th I woke up with a splitting headache, runny nose, itchy watery eyes and felt miserable! So much for avoiding the season. I had been taking typical allergy medication, always hesitant on taking too much for feeling drowsy, or just out of it so I tried to only take it when I went to bed. I recently received a sample of Hall's Sugar Free Mentho-lyptus, something I did not even think about trying for my symptoms. What I did find was that it helped relieve allergy related sore throat and cough symptoms and even help cool nasal passages. Halls started working within 10 seconds, offering an immediate break while waiting for my allergy medicine to kick in and take over. I certainly liked the taste of the black cherry versus taking the cough medicine with the cherry flavor which always made me gag! An easy and simple way to help get me threw the allergy season. Here are a few other helpful hints that I did to keep allergies down in my house.
1. Keep the windows closed during high pollen count.
2. Run a humidifier at night in the bedrooms.
3. Shower before bed to get the pollen off and keep it out of the sheets.
4. Do not hang laundry out on the line during high pollen count.
5. Nasal saline spray to keep the nose clear.
These hints can help make a hard allergy season a little easier. Do you have any helpful allergy hints to add?
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Halls and received products necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, I received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
