Enjoy outdoor season despite hay fever: Modern antihistamines provide fast-acting and long-lasting relief
Monday, 01. June 2009

The outdoor season started! Nature is in full blossom but for allergy sufferers the onset of the most beautiful time, the spring, signals their worst time of the year. Plagued by sniffling, sneezing or a congested nose, this beautiful season can hardly be described as enjoyable for patients with allergic rhinitis and conjuncticvitis. However, it does not have to be this way: even in spring and summer, the quality of life can be improved with the help of topically applied antihistamines such as Azelastine nasal spray or eye drops. In a recent synopsis (Horak 2008), Professor Friedrich Horak from the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at the University Clinic of Vienna states that the agent only needs to be applied when symptoms actually occur and significantly improves symptoms within a few minutes. Hay fever sufferers don´t have necessarily to avoid outdoor activities such as cycling, jogging or visiting the local swimming baths.
