If you suffer from asthma or allergies, you know how debilitating the symptoms can be. From watery, itchy eyes to coughing and a scratchy throat, both of these ailments require special treatment to help you feel your best. Before you purchase asthma and allergy medication over the counter, it's important to understand how these treatments work. Read on to learn about the products you can purchase that will help you breathe easier.

Allergy-Induced Asthma

Not everyone who has allergies has asthma and not everyone who has asthma deals with allergies. However, some people may experience asthma as a direct result of being allergic to specific substances. You can experience an allergic response to things like pollen, dust, or pet dander. Your body experiences an allergic response when the proteins (antibodies) in your immune system identify these substances as an invader. With common symptoms including a runny nose, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes, you may also experience problems with the lungs and airways. These problems can eventually lead to asthma symptoms if they go untreated.

Allergy and Asthma Treatment Options

If you suspect that you have asthma, you'll need to get an official diagnosis from your doctor. They may prescribe you steroids or give you an inhaler, depending on how severe the symptoms are. If you have allergies, you might need to get an allergy shot on a regular schedule to keep symptoms at bay. Thankfully, there are a few over the counter options to treat both allergies and asthma. These products tend to work well as long as your symptoms are mild, or your asthma is kept under control:

  • Eye drops : You can use eye drops to help treat the annoying symptoms of dry or itchy eyes. These can be purchased at most drugstores or online.
  • Nasal sprays or sinus meds: If you're dealing with a dry nose or congestion, give nasal sprays a try. Sinus medication can help relieve the pressure felt from sinus allergies.
  • Oral corticosteroids: Some versions of these treatments can be found in stores, but stronger doses must be prescribed by a physician. This medication can help treat both asthma and allergy conditions.
  • OTC allergy meds: Allergy treatments range from pills to sprays and liquids. Check the directions and ingredients and talk with your doctor before you take any form of allergy medication. If you're a parent, always check with your pediatrician before administering any allergy medicine to children.
