New Hampshire pharmacists are calling it the worst allergy season they’ve seen in years

With the warmer days people are starting to really suffer from runny noses and coughs and allergists have said pollen counts are high but there are ways to find relief. William McCormack, pharmacy manager at Elliot Pharmacy, said the pollen count is high right now and medications are helpful, but finding the right one depends on your symptoms. “A combination of different allergy medications is usually helpful, starting with an antihistamine. Something like loratadine or cetirizine is usually helpful. Some types of lubricating eye drops would be helpful if you have watery eyes,” McCormack said “He said sufferers will have to wait a few weeks. It’s a great resource. Go to your pharmacy and ask for their advice. Contacting your supplier could also be helpful,” McCormack said.

He said those suffering will have to wait a few weeks.

“If someone has allergies, I think your pharmacist is a great resource. Go to your pharmacy and ask their advice. Contacting your supplier might also be helpful,” McCormack said.
