An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Staying in front of allergy symptoms by utilizing your treatment program before symptoms begin is much more effective. It’s also very helpful to take note of specific triggers that may initiate allergy symptoms. If there are certain seasonal milestones that always seem to give you trouble, such as spring-flowering trees or cottonwood season, it’s always best to take your medication and initiate your prevention program before those triggers come into full bloom.
