Love is in the air, yet for some people with allergies and other sensitivities, Valentine’s Day can be scarier than Halloween. You do not want to ruin Valentine’s Day with a visit to the emergency room, so here are some tips to keep everyone safe.
Giving or getting flowers for Valentine’s Day is one of the classic gifts to show your love. Unfortunately, people can have severe symptoms such as sneezing, along with nose and eye itching and watering related to the pollen, or just the smell of particular flowers. Even an asthma attack can be triggered from them. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, there are many flowers you can get at a florist that produce little pollen. Look for tulips, roses, begonia, columbine, crocus, daffodil and geraniums if you want to be safe.
