Spring is here and summer is soon to begin. For most people that means warm weather and sunshine. For others, it means another nasty fight with seasonal allergies. With May being National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, it’s a good time to review the best home-based ways to fight these allergies.  

According to Channel 5 News, you can thin that thick mucus by making your own salt-water nasal spray or by eating spicy foods. Anyone allergic to pollen should reduce their intake of bananas, melon, or sunflower seeds.

Knowing the symptoms of allergies is essential to get treated. Some of the most common symptoms are the following: Watery eyes, Sneezing, Stuffy or Runny nose, Itchiness in nose and eyes and roof of mouth, and Hives.
