      During this time of year the weeds are growing and pollinating which means that some people with allergies maybe having a flare with symptoms which can be costly.

      Dr. Erin Cannington with Allergy and Asthma Clinics of Georgia suggests instead of running to the doctor and having to pay a high bill, use saline nasal spray or salt water rinse to help relieve allergy symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing, itching, or runny nose.

      She also suggests using generic over the counter medicine which will also help lower you costs. Dr. Cannington adds that "preventing an allergy flare before it starts is important because if you end up having to see your physician because your allergies lead to a sinus infection then you'll have to cover the cost of medicine and or visits in order to recover."

      She also adds that you need to take preventive allergy and asthma medication during this time of year, and wear masks to avoid the problem before it starts.
