One of the toughest things about being a parent is when you see your child suffering and you feel helpless to fix it. That is how I have felt every allergy season with my now 12 year old daughter who seems to be allergic to just about everything in the air these days. For years I have been trying to help her with various allergy pills, but she goes months on end without being able to do something as simple as breathe through her little nose. When we had the chance to try FLONASE Sensimist™ Allergy Relief with a new patented OTC system which helps alleviate the awful allergy symptoms she suffers from, I was hopeful we had finally found just what she needed.
FLONASE Sensimist™ Allergy Relief is a non-drowsy formula which gives 24-hour relief for both nose and eye-related allergy symptoms, including itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing. Unlike most allergy pills which only work on histamine, FLONASE Sensimist™ Allergy Relief Spray battles histamine, prostaglandins, cytokines, tryptases, chemokines and leukotrienes with full prescription strength.
I have to admit – it took a bit of convincing to get her to try the FLONASE Spray. But once I assured her that it was scent-free and virtually drip-free she gave it a shot. The unique ergonomic design makes it less invasive and provides consistent dosing every time – something I was a little concerned about giving it to a 12 year old. She was able to use the spray just fine and said it did seem to help – even from the very first spray.
For my daughter, allergies are more than just the occasional sneeze – and more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year. In fact, people with seasonal allergies make more than 8.5 million visits to the doctor – just looking for relief. Hay fever alone causes nearly 4 million missed workdays every year! While my daughter does not have to worry about missing work yet, I do not want her to miss out on all of the fun things tweens CAN do – like her first dance that is coming up, sleepovers, sports, Girl Scout trips, and more.
