Desperate Times, Desperate Measures: Actually, Common Sense Measures

If you have known allergy exacerbations of cough, runny stuffy nose, itchy eyes etc., due to this season of allergens, I would strongly recommend that you start an antihistamine every day to prevent those symptoms which can radically worsen.
 
In these uncertain times these symptoms might have you wondering if you’ve contracted the Coronavirus by an incidental contact. You really don’t want to spend your time in a doctor’s office or an emergency room being vigorously evaluated for Covid-19 just because you did not take a simple medication which would help control your airway inflammation.
 
So!! Please start using an anti-histamine and any other airway anti-inflammatory medication such as nasal steroids, Benadryl, Claritin, Allegra etc. etc. Of course, please use all medications wisely. Don’t drive or use heavy equipment if certain of these medications cause you extreme drowsiness. We don’t want you to have an accident that sends you to the ER, defeating the main goal! If alcohol is in your daily diet and there can possibly be competition in the liver for attention of these two medications (yes I am referring to alcohol as a medication), these are considerations you should keep in mind as well.
