Tips for Travelling with Allergies

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by the makers of REACTINE®. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

While the act of travelling is stocked full of all sorts of supreme goodness, it does come with its fair share of stressors. Planning, packing, prepping – there’s a lot of work that goes into making that trip an amazing one.

Before I travel, I always prepare for the unexpected. It’s my way of reducing the effects of any issues that may come up. For instance, medications and first aid supplies are a must. Being stocked with everything helps to increase comfort and health, which helps to make travels go smoothly.

As a general rule, I pack items needed for headaches, cuts, scrapes, nausea, and allergies. The first few items on my must-pack list might seem obvious. You yourself might have the same packing checklist in those regards. Yet time and time again I’m finding that it’s the allergens that seem to cause chaos when travelling.

Whether it is seasonal allergies or simply being in a different place with different elements, my allergies seem to always catch me off guard, which means that I’m stuck muddling through the rest of my trip in an allergy haze. – I’ve encountered quite a few instances when I needed the relief brought by an allergy medication like REACTINE® on a vacation. After all, you might be jetting off in the winter when you don’t usually have allergic reactions, yet perhaps your destination is to a warmer place where pollen and grass is waiting to make you sneeze and itch. I myself have discovered sensitivities to different plants and flowers, which aren’t common where I reside, yet only discovered while travelling. Go figure!

Tips for Travelling with Allergies, packing suggestions to make sure your vacation is one of relief

So before jetting off on that winter holiday this year, here are some tips for travelling with allergies:
