Allergies: The Unbearable Sniffing, Sneezing and Drainage

My name is Marilyn Baker, and I have horrible allergies. I’m 42 years old and have been suffering from allergies since I was a child. I have seasonal and environmental allergies. Allergies plague me year round. When I was young, my parents even moved to a dryer area in the hope of helping me. Over the past eight years, I have done extensive research both through doctors and online. I have managed to come up with some combinations that have helped me a great deal. My allergies aren’t gone, but they have become manageable. I do have to have allergy shots, but I also use some natural remedies. I am happy to be able to share my findings with you here on my blog. I hope you can find some of this of value.

Take PrEP To Help Prevent Getting HIV

by Clifton Davidson

PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. It is usually a one-a-day pill that a person can take that can help protect them in case they are exposed to HIV. It can be used on its own or as part of a safer sex practice. PrEP isn't just for the LGBT+ community; rather, but can be taken by anyone who may be at a heightened risk for exposure to HIV. Getting on PrEP is important, and there are different ways that you can do it. 

Primary Care Physician

One way that you can do obtain PrEP is to visit your primary care physician. You can talk to them to see if they are familiar with PrEP and which one of the two medications that you can take. While the two medications both work as prophylaxis, they are geared toward different demographics. It's important that you talk to your doctor about all your concerns and all of your risk factors. If you aren't honest with your doctor, you may not be able to get the best medication for you and your specific needs. However, you may be in a situation that makes it hard for you to talk to your doctor, for whatever reason. For example, you may be closeted and it wouldn't be safe for you to be out, which would make it hard for you to go to the doctor and get the meds you need. Fortunately, there are other ways for you to obtain this medication. 

Virtual Ordering

Another thing that you can do is to find a site where you can order the medication online. A site like this generally has a doctor on staff that you can talk to. You can talk to them about your concerns and all your risk factors and see what they think. The doctor can then give you a prescription that you can get filled. One nice thing about acquiring your medication this way is that the site will generally fill your prescription and mail it to you. If you are concerned about people knowing that you are on PrEP, for whatever reason, you can work with the site to have a safe place to send the medication so that you can access them without worry. 

Protecting yourself from the chance of exposure to HIV is really easy. Taking PrEP every day is the best way to do it, along with safer sex practices. Talk to your doctor or find a site online where you can get access to the medications you need. Contact a medical service for more information regarding things like PrEP medicine.
