Spring Time Allergy: There are good medications that are known as steroid sprays that diminish the mucous swelling during allergy season. These are very easily available with a prescription.

I agree with Dr. Killian. When the steroid nasal sprays (Qnasl, Flonase, Nasonex, etc) are started BEFORE the pollen season starts, even better control can be achieved. There is no cure, but control is possible.
