The Doctors welcome allergist Dr. Neeta Ogden, a Xyzal spokesperson, for Allergy Week to discuss how allergies can impact how you feel during the day and the night and share tips on what you can do about it.
“Sleep is such an essential part of our well-being. If you don’t get enough rest, this is going to impact your general health and your alertness. So, it’s really important to find out what your allergy triggers are and try to avoid them,” she says.
Dr. Andrew Ordon explains you can find out what is causing your allergies from a simple skin test and he notes that pollen, dust mites, and pet dander are often triggers.
He suggests washing your hair before going to bed, as pollen can transfer to pillows and expose you to that allergen all night long.
Dr. Ogden says pets bring allergens into your bedroom and says not to sleep with them.
“There are lots of medication options out there. I think people are often confused about what to take to relieve their allergy symptoms and everyone responds differently so you may have to try different medications to see which one works for you,” she says. “I like Xyzal Allergy 24HR. It relieves allergy symptoms and is designed to be taken at night. So you can get a good night’s sleep for a more productive day.”
As always, consult your doctor before starting any medications and if you have questions about your allergies. For more tips, visit www.allergy.com.
