The saying goes, “With April showers, come May flowers.” However, it seems they forgot about the allergies that come with the flowers. Starting in Spring, many Ava High School students began noticing the symptoms of allergies that come from pollen and dust in the area. There are many symptoms, and most of them can also be confused for cold symptoms, but the regular signs of allergies are a runny nose, sneezing, and coughing.

    Thankfully, there exist a few preventive measures for these pollen-based allergies. First, people can avoid going outside for long periods of time. Second, receiving allergy shots before your symptoms emerge can increase your resistance to the symptoms. Third, over the counter allergy medication, like Claritin, can alleviate your symptoms for 12 to 24 hours. Keep in mind, none of these will actually cure allergies, but will allow you to handle them better.

    If you see someone sneezing in the hall this week, remember it isn’t a cold or flu. They merely have a case of allergies.
