Target Canada encourages allergy sufferers to turn to pharmacists for help
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — Target is encouraging its patients in Canada to turn to their Target pharmacist for answers and advice on how to manage their allergy symptoms this spring.
The retailer stated that approximately 1-out-of-4 Canadians currently suffer from seasonal allergies and following an extremely harsh winter, the 2014 allergy season is expected to be one of the worst.
For many, the wheezing and coughing has already begun, with the most common allergy symptoms including sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, watery and itchy eyes, scratchy swollen throat and dry cough.
"Allergies can often be confused with the common cold, and it’s important to differentiate before seeking treatment," stated Bowen Chen, pharmacist, Target Canada. "At this time of year, the main allergen is tree pollen, while grass pollens dominate in the summer and weed pollens in the autumn. You can rely on your local pharmacist to be a good resource for helping to manage your seasonal allergies and recommending the best products and solutions based on your specific allergens. Effectively controlling allergies is especially important in preventing symptoms from leading to more serious complications such as asthma attacks. "
There are currently more than 100 Target pharmacy locations across Canada.
