Allergy is our bodies’ reaction to foreign invaders or substances. These substances are called allergens and they are usually harmless. When you are prone to allergies and get exposed to a new sense, your body will release antibodies that act as a defensive system. These antibodies remove the allergens. During this process, histamine is released and it causes the symptoms of allergy. Allergic reactions vary from person to person. It could be only mild to the other person but can be life-threatening to others. So to help relieve these symptoms, antihistamines medications are used.

What Are The Common Symptoms Of Allergy?

  • Hives or rashes
  • Conjunctivitis is characterized by redness, itchiness, or soreness of the eyes
  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Coughing
  • Trouble in breathing
  • Abdominal pain or cramps
  • Dizziness

All symptoms of allergies are classified as mild to moderate to severe. Mild reactions can disappear without treatment, while other symptoms might need immediate treatment. Antihistamines are the treatment for the symptoms of allergies. We can buy Antihistamines over the counter, but another brand needs your doctor’s prescription.

Two Types Of Antihistamines

There are two types of antihistamines. The non-drowsy antihistamines and the antihistamines can make you feel drowsy. They come in tablets, nasal spray, eye drops, lotions, creams, or syrups.

Non-Drowsy Antihistamines

  • Cetirizine
  • Cinnarizine
  • Diphenhydramine
  • Loratadine

Antihistamines That Make You Tired

  • Chlorphenamine
  • Acrivastine
  • Promethazine
  • Hydroxyzine

Some people use antihistamines to make themselves sleep, especially those dealing with insomnia. Though it was not prohibited since it can be acquired without a doctor’s prescription, it is still better to be safe. Not all antihistamines are suitable for you. It is still vital that you have to seek your doctor’s advice. A brand you bought in the pharmacy can work for others but may not work for you. Just like any other medicine, they have side effects too. If you are not careful, you might experience side effects that will inconvenience your daily activities or worst might cause serious complications to your health.

Some Side Effects Of Antihistamines

  • Drowsiness
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry mouth
  • Difficulty in urinating
  • Nausea
  • Headache

Only take them to treat allergies and not for other reasons. Ask your doctor about what type of antihistamines will work for you. It is also vital to know how and when to take your antihistamine and what you need. If you are under medication, you should tell your doctor because there might be risks when taking antihistamines at the same time. It is better to be safe than be sorry.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
