What Allergy Doctors says
Men's Health-Dr. Craig
Dr. Timothy Craig
Timothy Craig, D.O., is a professor at Penn State University College of Medicine and allergist and immunologist at the Penn State University Hershey Medical Center. He's been in the field for 15 years and is a first-year regent with the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
He uses a saltwater rinse every night before bed and a nasal steroid in the morning to help combat his mold allergies. "I make my own salt water with 8 ounces warm tap water with 1/8 tsp sea salt," he says.
If homemade rinses and over-the-counter medicines don't work for you, he says it's worth seeing a doctor for a prescription. "The best medications out there are topical nasal steroids, but they require a prescription," he says.
As a severe allergic mom, I always discuss any new method with my doctor especially when it requires intake.
