Several simple measures are often very effective for managing mild to moderate symptoms:
- A nasal corticosteroid spray that can be purchased over-the-counter or by prescription.
- Non-sedating anithistamines .
- Medicated eye-drops.
- Staying indoors on windy days or when the pollen count is high.
- Wearing sunglasses.
- Keeping car windows closed and setting the air conditioner to recycle.
Allergen immunotherapy is a generally longer-term treatment if required.
