It is completely normal to only be able to handle so much time indoors before it starts to take a toll on your mental health. While we have been practicing social distancing, it is still important that we get outside, especially on nice days, in order to enjoy the sunshine and breathe the fresh air—even if it is in your own backyard.
However, when you are trying to get a breath of fresh air, the last thing you want is having to sneeze and starting to experience an itchy throat and watery eyes. Therefore, our team at AFC Urgent Care Chattanooga wants you to know how you can enjoy your time outside without having to deal with the seasonal allergies.
What Are the Symptoms of Spring Allergies?
