Colloidal Silver For Allergies, Hay Fever & Sore Nose
Many look forward to spring after the cold winter, however for hay fever and allergy sufferers dread this season as they await a couple of months of allergy symptoms such as blocked noses, sneezing and watery eyes.
Hay Fever (Allergic Rhinitus)
Hay fever, otherwise known as dust allergies are an allergy to proteins in the pollen of trees, grasses, some plants, or mold which affects the mucous membranes of the nose, eyes, and air passages.
Many of the symptoms of hay fever are similar to those of the common cold.
- itchy, red eyes
- watery discharge from the nose and eyes
- nervous irritability.
People with allergic rhinitis often have allergy symptoms that also involve the eyes.
Other allergies cause a distinctive clear, thin nasal discharge, whereas secretions caused by colds usually become thick and yellow-greenish as the illness progresses.
Colds are often associated with mid fever and are usually gone within a week, while allergy sufferers often have a feeling of becoming “wiped out” for weeks on end.
