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.

Find Out When You Should Visit A Flu Care Center

by Clifton Davidson

If you are feeling under the weather and believe that you have the flu, you might come to a point where you should visit a flu care center to see if there are any treatments or advice you can be given. Of course, many people find that they struggle when trying to figure out when they need to go to a medical professional for possible flu treatments. To help you figure out whether or not you should go to a flu care center, simply read through the following: 

You've Been Sick For Around Two Weeks

If you are closing in on the end of your second week of being sick, it is time to get to the doctor. You will want to count back to when your symptoms really started, which might have begun with something simple as a headache for a day or two. Then your symptom list could have gotten longer with the addition of congested sinuses, coughing, and sneezing.

Your Fever Can't Be Kept Under Control

You might notice that you develop a fever while you have the flu, but over time, you should be able to get the fever reduced. However, if you are having trouble getting your temperature to move in the right direction, you will want to find a flu care center or clinic. You might think that the fever is under control but then it spikes back up, even if you are trying to control it with medication and hydration.

You Notice Thick Yellow Or Green Mucus 

Mucus is something that a lot of people end up dealing with when they have the flu. The thing is, it can show you that you have a serious infection along with the flu if the mucus is thick and green or yellow in color. Talk with your doctor if you are experiencing this.

With all of that in mind, you should be able to quickly decide whether you should go to the doctor's office or clinic now, or if you might not be in that extreme of a situation yet. Do make sure that you are seeking out medical advice and care in order to ensure that you are going to feel better sooner, rather than later. This is especially important if you already suffer medically from things such as diabetes, heart conditions, or any auto immune disorder. Those who are currently under the care of a doctor for something could find that the flu will take a larger toll on their bodies.
