What is hay fever and what are its symptoms?
Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, is a condition that causes cold-like symptoms such as a runny nose, itchy eyes, congestion, sneezing and sinus pressure. Unlike a cold, it is not caused by a virus but rather by an allergic response to a harmless substance such as pollen, dust mites or pet dander. Hay fever can greatly affect your daily life by making you feel miserable and interfering with your work or school performance. However, by identifying and avoiding triggers and finding the right treatment, you can effectively manage and alleviate the symptoms of hay fever.
What are some common hay fever triggers?
Hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, can be triggered by various allergens. Some common triggers include tree pollen, which is common in early spring, grass pollen, which is common in late spring and summer, and ragweed pollen, which is common in the fall. Additionally, dust mites and cockroach droppings can trigger hay fever year-round, while dander from pets can cause worse symptoms in winter when houses are closed up. Spores from indoor and outdoor fungi and moulds can also be both seasonal and year-round triggers for hay fever.
What is the active ingredient and how does it work?
The active ingredient in Benadryl Allergy One a Day 10 mg Tablets is 10 mg cetirizine dihydrochloride. Cetirizine dihydrochloride is an antihistamine which helps to relieve the symptoms of hay fever and other allergic conditions such as pet or dust allergies and skin reactions by reducing the effects of histamine in the body. Histamine is a chemical that is released by the body in response to an allergen, causing the symptoms of an allergic reaction such as itching, sneezing, and runny nose. Cetirizine dihydrochloride works by blocking the effects of histamine, reducing the symptoms of the allergic reaction.
Will I feel drowsy after taking Cetirizine?
While Cetirizine is classified as a non-drowsy antihistamine, it is still possible to feel sleepy after taking it. If this occurs, it is important to avoid any activities that require alertness, such as driving a car, riding a bike, or using tools or machinery, until the drowsiness has subsided. It is recommended to speak with your healthcare provider if you experience persistent drowsiness after taking Cetirizine.
