Pollen allergies are the worst. I have a pollen allergy and especially this time of year, my face, eyes, nose, throat and sinuses just feel like crap. If you have a pollen allergy, you totally understand what I am talking about.

Most of the time, my go-to allergy relief is to take an over-the-counter allergy medicine. My go-to medicine is Claritin and that normally works pretty well. Other over-the-counter medicines to combat pollen allergies include Zyrtec, Benadryl, Allegra, and many others that are antihistamines.

I also really love to use a Neti Pot. I normally use it in the shower because if you've ever used a Neti Pot, you know how disgusting you can look and the process can be. A Neti Pot is also a very natural way to clear out your sinuses.

But what are other ways to defeat those pesky seasonal allergies? I hate being miserable just like the next person with seasonal allergies. I checked with WedMB to see what they recommend. A lot of what they recommend are super easy to do, and most are just healthy practices in general.

Before checking out the list or before going outside, check the pollen count in the Quad Cities to see if you are going to be O.K. or feel miserable all day long.

You can see the day's pollen count and the pollen count forecast here.

Here are 10 ways to defeat pollen allergies.
