Many over-the-counter medicines claim to be able to provide relief to those who suffer from hay fever, but CBS News reports that a new herbal nasal spray may be the answer to the elimination of symptoms. Researchers from the University of Goetheburg in Sweden say that a formulated spray containing traces of pine tree might ease hay fever symptoms.
"The cellulose powder has no adverse effects, and this fact makes it a particularly attractive treatment for children," Nils Aberg, lead researcher, told the news source.
An advantage to using an herbal remedy is it comes with less side effects than over-the-counter or prescription medications. More testing is required on the spray before it will be widely available to the public.
Individuals who suffer from allergies throughout the year may also want to consider using an air purifier. The IQ HealthPro Plus contains a HyperHEPA filter that can remove allergens from up to 900 square feet of space.
Ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size can be eliminated with the system. The IQ HealthPro Plus can also remove airborne bacteria that can cause sinus infections and illness.
