My favorite part of traveling is being able to explore new areas. I love getting out in nature, going for a hike and camping. Unfortunately, my allergies do not always appreciate it. I never know when my allergy symptoms will start, but most often it is when I’m surrounded by trees. Below I share my tips on how to enjoy hiking with allergies.
Dealing with allergies can be a huge hassle. It triggers headaches, makes my eyes and face puffy and I get extremely tired. Not a good combination when trying to go for a day of hiking. I am always determined not to let my allergies get the best of me and keep me from enjoying our vacations. I couldn’t imagine missing out on this gorgeous view of the Smoky Mountains or camping at the Palo Duro Canyon.
We occasionally take our large dogs camping with us. My Great Dane sheds and triggers my allergies indoors. Even when sharing a large ten person tent with him, it can get a little tight when my allergies are acting up. Being surrounded by nature during our campout is something I truly love, but it also prevents me from having an escape from all the pollen.
Instead of giving up my favorite hobbies, I have learned the importance of being prepared.
How to Enjoy Hiking with Allergies
Thankfully, there is a new full prescription strength allergy relief medication on the block. Now available over-the-counter at your local CVS, Xyzal® Allergy 24HR can be purchased in 10 count, 35 count, 55 count or even 80 count!
You no longer need to get a doctor prescription for Xyzal® Allergy 24HR. This antihistamine product provides continuous all night, all day allergy relief. It is clinically proven to relieve allergy symptoms within 60 minutes.
The 24-hour relief of sneezing, runny nose, itchy watery eyes, and itchy nose or throat will allow you to get out and enjoy nature on your next hike.
Remember, when taking a new medication always read the warning labels and follow the instructions on the box. Xyzal is to be taken at night. Although it is not a sleep aid, it will help you get a restful night of sleep by preventing you from suffering all night with severe allergies. No need to toss and turn to prevent your nose from runny or sneezing keeping you awake at night.
Even though I take Xyzal at night, I like to keep it in my hiking care kit so I have it on me when camping. The Xyzal 10 count box is the perfect size for travel. It is thin enough to zip up inside my small pouch.
