Health Spotlight


Seasonal Allergies

With signs of spring all around Washington, D.C. (including budding Cherry Blossoms!), you may have started to notice symptoms of seasonal allergies: watery eyes, nasal congestion and sneezing.  Find out more about allergy symptoms and what you can do about them!


Helpful Tip!

 If you have suffered with springtime seasonal allergy symptoms in the past, start using a nasal steroid spray at the end of every winter season to minimize the development of symptoms when the pollen counts start to rise.

If you are unsure whether your symptoms are due to allergies or not, please make an appointment at the SHC or with AcademicLiveCare
