Achoo! Allergies?

Many people suffer from seasonal allergies. All of that sniffling and sneezing can make you feel tired and drained. You can avoid some of the effects of allergies if you are in air-conditioning, but you probably want to go outside as much as you can in summer. One thing you can watch for is the amount of pollen in the air. You or your parents can check out the daily news reports
about the pollen count. If it is high, you might plan to stay indoors.

Some natural remedies you might not know about that can help clear up your sinuses are saline or salt water, used to clear a stuffy nose, and a cold compress to relieve sinus pressure.
