Spring is finally here, and it is time to put a little pep in your step by taking steps to be proactive about your own health. As your local pharmacy, we are here to help you in any way that we can! We have put together a few pieces of advice you can use to be healthier and happier this Spring!
Fight Those Allergies
Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies every year, making them the 6th leading cause of chronic illness. Symptoms tend to flare up in the Spring and Summer but may last into the early Fall. The most common signs of seasonal allergies include:
- Stuffy nose
- Runny nose
- Watery eyes
- Itching of the nose, eyes, and mouth
- Respiratory discomfort
If you are one of the many people who will struggle with seasonal allergies this Spring, why not pay a visit to your local pharmacy for some over-the-counter medication. Taking a daily dose of antihistamines can often be enough to keep your allergies under control.
Now that Spring is here; it is a traditional time to give your home a deep clean! This will not only leave your home fresh and clean, but it will also benefit your overall health and wellbeing. You would be surprised just how much dirt and debris can gather in textiles and drapes. This can include allergens and irritants like mold spores, dust mites, and bacteria. Now more than ever, it is essential to clean and sanitize your home to remove any traces of bacteria that could cause not only Coronavirus but other illnesses like Flu or Norovirus.
If you need a kick start to get the cleaning underway, stop by your local pharmacy to pick up your favorite cleaning products. Vaughn Pharmacy has well-stocked shelves in our home cleaning department, with items starting from just $1.
VIP Pill Boxes
Managing your medications just got a whole lot easier with VIP Pill Boxes from your local pharmacy! We will organize all of your prescription drugs, vitamins, supplements, and other over-the-counter items by date and time and package them into easy to open packets. Each packet is labeled with the time and date as well as the name and dose of your medication and a description of its appearance, so you know you have the right pills. It can also include a pre-printed reminder for liquid medications and inhalers that won’t fit in the package.
Start With Sunscreen
With the weather beginning to heat up, we will all be spending more time outdoors. Start using sunscreen now and protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Your local pharmacy has a wide range of sun protection products to choose from, so be sure to stop by if you need some advice on the right option for your skin.
