Spring is just around the corner and for many people it brings itchy eyes, sneezing and a stuffy nose. So what’s the best way to relieve allergy symptoms?
Dr. Sandra Hong with Cleveland Clinic says nasal steroids can be extremely effective.
"Making sure that they point them outwards — right nostril, right ear, left nostril, left ear. Because we want to avoid nasal septum that runs down the center. Because if you point into it, you can get nose bleeds," said Hong.
The doctor also recommends starting with the nasal steroid as soon as it warms up outside. Then, to fight itching, sneezing and post-nasal drip, she suggests antihistamines.
