With April showers come allergies

Chicago winters can be tough, but at least you don’t have allergies. With warmer weather, plants release pollen and the sniffling and sneezing begins.  Keep in mind that pollen counts are highest between 5:00AM and 10:00 AM.  And the best time to be outside is  after a rainstorm when the air is clean. While there’s no cure, there is relief. Find it at your nearest PrimeCareHealth location.
