Blog: Allergies Hayfever or Sinus



 

Goodbye winter! Hello Spring!


For many, Spring is exciting – there’s the energy of new growth and summer days ahead. But for others, it’s a time of misery, as they suffer through red, watering eyes and itchy noses, and sneezing multiple times during the day. Not only that, sometimes it’s not quite clear just what your symptoms mean: do you have hay fever, an allergy or is it sinus?  

Allergy, Hay Fever or Sinus?

Itchiness, irritation, redness, swelling, congestion – are all key symptoms for allergies, hay fever and sinus but how to tell the difference so you choose the right Pegasus remedy?  See below as we discuss symptoms and which remedies are indicated for specific conditions.

 

histamine comp 30C – can be a life-saver for most allergies and as well as relieving the symptoms of allergies such as itching, swelling and redness, an additional bonus is that it does not cause drowsiness or dry mouth, unlike many allopathic histamine remedies. (This natural ‘anti-histamine’ will help build a ‘tolerance’ in the patient, towards the presenting antigen eg: dust, pollen, cat hair, etc)

This remedy is also effective for skin rashes, urticaria and itchy eczema (a skin rash triggered by a reaction to food, medicine or other irritants) chicken pox and shingles. ( For shingles add injury 6C  for nerve pain & inflammatory relief . Alternate the two remedies and include L-Lysine 1000mg twice daily)

Sinus congestion? If it’s triggered by an allergy, (ie: not colds or flu) then use histamine comp 30C and an hour or two later the sinus 30C and continue alternating until symptoms are gone – great for headaches and relieving a post nasal drip. 

Don’t use more than 3 remedies a day and stop dosing when symptoms resolve.
 
EASY,SAFE AND EFFECTIVE- even for pregnant ladies and babies.
  
Use Pegasus  hayfever 6C  remedy for sneezing, streaming watery discharges from (puffy) eyes and running nose, even itching in the eyes and ear canals. Other symptoms include itchy nose and an itchy palate.  An itchy palate is a very distinctive and important symptom as it most clearly indicates hayfever. People often ask when they should take hayfever or the histamine complex and an itchy palate is the condition that helps to make that decision. 
.
While symptoms are acute suck 3-5 pillules in a clean dry mouth every half an hour until relief is obtained thereafter every 2-4 hours as needed.

Of course your pets can have the same symptoms – but they can’t tell you so our Pegasus PET  hayfever 6C is indicated if you notice symptoms of sneezing, itchy eyes, nose and palate, watery discharge from the nose and eyes.
 
If your cat exhibits signs of rhinotracheitis ( cold/flu & hayfever like symptoms) use snuffles complex 12 (for cats)
 
Stinging, burning and itchy sensations in your animals, either as a result of insect bites and stings ( mosquitoes, fleas, bees, wasp, jellyfish, bluebottle stings) or grass and pollen allergies, are relieved by our pet remedy sting & itch 30C

Remember, regardless of the size of the animal (mouse, puppy or horse) it’s the SAME dose of 3-5 pillules. ( homeopathy is s a message to the body and frequency is more important than actual amount.)

It’s cost effective (150 doses per bottle) and completely safe to use even with pregnant animals.  And good news is that the remedies never expire. 

Our pet remedies are available from Pet shops (PET WORLD, The Catbox, Queen Pet and Absolute Pets) SA Vetshops & Vet Pantry, and some pharmacies.
