How I'm surviving my allergies11:10 AM
Spring is definitely here. I've been sneezing and rubbing my eyes due to itchiness for a few weeks now, but it wasn't until the beginning of last week where I got the major hit. My throat was itchy and I developed the gross, phlegm-y cough. However, within 3-5 days I'm back to almost normal, and I felt like these things I did really helped. Most of the things I do are pretty self explanatory, but I thought I'll share a few tips.
I prefer this Chinese herbal one rather than the infamous Robitussin. First off, the taste is way better in my opinion, and it has other benefits besides soothing throat irritations. It nourishes the lungs, balance heat, and keep skin "radiant" from long hours and staying up late.
4. Allergy medicine
I personally do not take any because I am allergic to most of them. Yeah, it sucks, but from those that I know that took over the counter allergy medicines, it's a win-lose. My sister have tried a bunch and none seem to work on her so I don't feel like I'm missing out.
Being congested is not fun, but steam really helps relieve it. Taking hot showers really soothes the stuffiness and make you realized how you've been taking breathing normally for granted haha~
I am a lot better now, but I still have a cough - not the phlegmy, gross sounding one so I'm glad. I honestly cannot wait until summer is here.
