Many allergy remedies are available without a prescription

Many people suffer from allergies. If you are predisposed to it, preventing allergic reactions is virtually impossible, and unfortunately there is no medicine that can permanently cure the allergy. Fortunately, there are a large number of products that successfully combat the complaints. Some of these can be obtained from pharmacies without a doctor’s prescription.

Without a doctor’s prescription, but with common sense

The fact that you can buy certain products without a doctor’s prescription at a drugstore or pharmacy does not mean that you can rely on all the manufacturer’s recommendations without critical thinking. The leaflets or packaging of the various products contain important instructions that should always be consulted and it is also not unwise to seek advice from the pharmacy.
