Coping with Seasonal Allergies

General Steps to Help Reduce Allergies The number of people with allergies has tripled over the last 20 years, and many people in their 40s and 50s are now experiencing hay fever and other allergies for the first time in their life. Imagine owning a car alarm that’s a tad too sensitive, letting out a piercing shriek at the slightest provocation.
