Spring Allergy Issues #shop #CollectiveBias

Our entire family suffers with allergy issues, yet somehow, we are always unprepared when allergy season hits.  Spring is our absolute favorite time of the year and being outside is a must.  Soccer games, planting our garden, going to the park, fishing, looking for bugs, and just being outside and enjoying the weather as a family is very important to us.  Allergies have ruined much of this time for us year after year, but this year, I'm going to be prepared!  I purchased a few items that will get our family through allergy season in our Family Allergy Season Survival Kit.

The older boys and I went to Walgreens to see what we would need to deal with our allergy issues before they became a big problem.  I quickly found their allergy medication section and saw the Well at Walgreens brand of different medications.  Hubby had asked me to pick him up some Wal-Zyr, which is a 24 hour antihistimine for adults.

 The Captain has allergies year-round and we need to always carry something with us in case he breaks out in hives or has a sneezing fit.  Last Spring, he and a friend were rolling in the grass and he immediately started itching, sneezing, and had itchy eyes.  I found that Well at Walgreens had a quick acting antihistimine for children called Wal-Dryl allergy tabs AND they had a bonus size, too!

We also have skin allergies and eczema and while we aren't sure exactly what causes it, we do know that our skin has to be extra moisturized and protected against allergens.  Walgreens had a tremendous selection of products for eczema and skin care.  I found a great heavy duty, non-petroleum moisturizer from BabyGanics that is pure and natural, so I decided to give it a shot.  So far, it has helped the Captain's skin stay moisturized and feel much better!

So what's in our family allergy season survival kit?  Here's a run down of the essentials:

  • Wal-Zyr 24 hour antihistimine for adults, so we can attack allergies before they start
  • Wal-Dryl allergy tabs for kids, so the Captain's allergic reactions can be stopped quickly
  • Anefrin decongestant Nasal Spray from Well at Walgreens 
  • BabyGanics Protective Ointment for the Captain's skin allergies and eczema
  • tissues!
  • Neil Med Sinus Rinse to flush out allergens and soothe sinuses
  • caffeine free herb tea for soothing sore and itchy throats
  • raw local honey to help allergies year round

Walgreens also has a terrific selection of vitamins and supplements for kids and adults to boost immunity so allergy issues won't be such a problem.  And of course, don't forget the pain relievers, humidifiers, and Breathe Right nose strips to make breathing at night easier.  We also rely on Walgreens for our prescription medication when it is needed.  Walgreens truly is a one stop shop for allergy season.

Beginning February 1, 2011 through December 31, 2014, 1¢ from  the purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness product, up to $3 million annually, will support bringing preventative wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Commitment®. What a fabulous initiative that makes me love Walgreens even more.

  1. My little one is having such a time with allergies today … this was timely.  I need to give her some meds and put her to bed.

  2. I LOVE the idea of an allergy kit! My husband, my son and I all suffer from allergies. My hubby and son get it the worst, though, and Jack gets allergy meds every day. Allergies are NO fun, and they can be a real beast in Texas!

  3. Oh spring in Texas is no fun – the idea of a allergy kit would be great!

  4. I have a couple of kids with allergy problems and some of these products are definitely ones we need to add to our stash. 

     

  5. We always use a netti pot twice a day, it seems to really help. I've already had sinus issues, and it's just the first day of spring. I see yellow pollen over everything outside, yuck.

  6. I am really fortunate in that I don't suffer from any seasonal allergies. I am happy to see that Walgreens has so many options if I did need them!

  7. yet one more reason to shop Walgreens! I just love Walgreens! We have a lot of allergy issues! I need to take inventory and get it restocked before the pollen starts flying. 

  8. I am already suffering from allergies and I am miserable!  Congested, head stuffy, tired, sniffly horribleness. And there is SO much of spring left to go!

  9. Luckily we don't have too many issues with allergies around here. We usually use Claritan and have some tissues on hand. I will check out the Walgreens brand the next time we are in need!

  10. I'm sure it's tough when it's a little one who has allergy problems. It's so nice that you found something that works so well for him at Walgreen's

  11. Love your kit! It has started to dry out here and I am still unprepared for the pollen to really hit. The herbal tea and honey is a big one for me. It helps me get by till the medicines kick in. #client
