Allergic rhinitis is a common reason patients stop by the pharmacy to seek symptom relief.

More than 19 million adults have been diagnosed with hay fever in the past 12 months, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Whether it’s seasonal or perennial allergic rhinitis, pharmacists can help patients find solutions to symptoms such as itchy eyes or skin, sneezing, stuffy or runny nose, and fatigue.

Pharmacists’ top-recommended oral antihistamine is Claritin, followed by Zyrtec, Allegra Allergy, and Benadryl, according to the 2015 OTC Guide. Pharmacists can also help patients select OTC eye drops, nasal sprays, and decongestants.

In addition, pharmacists can remind patients to wash their hands after petting animals, use special bedding covers and dehumidifiers to control mold and dust mites, wear sunglasses to avoid pollen in their eyes, and use air conditioning during high-pollen seasons instead of opening windows.
