Healthline 11 Report: Cutting allergy costs

It can be expensive – and annoying – to keep allergy symptoms at bay.

Here in Arizona, doctors’ offices and urgent cares are already seeing lines to get treatments for their allergies.

If you regularly suffer from allergies, it may be worth it to do a little research to save yourself some cash.

According to Money magazine, shopping online for allergy remedies can actually save you a few bucks.

In the cases of over the counter antihistamines, like claritin or Allegra, experts found that when you shop online for those products, you can save about 85%.

You can also reduce the impact of allergies by taking a few simple steps at home, like removing yourself from whatever you know for sure is causing your allergies. Also, stay indoors or in places like an air conditioned car.

Also, take regular showers to get rid of the pollen on your body. Changing the air filters in your house can also help reduce allergic reations, and wearing cotton may also help as it is less likely to attract pollen.
