How to Treat an Allergy Headache

Many people suffer from headaches that are triggered by allergies. Allergy headaches are extremely painful, causing pressure in the sinus area, and most of the time, an allergy headache is not helped by over-the-counter headache medications, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.

Difference between an Allergy Headache and a Migraine

Many people have trouble telling the difference between an allergy headache and a migraine. First, if you get a headache after eating or drinking something, and the headache is accompanied by swelling, hives and breathing problems get to the hospital! This is a headache brought on by an allergy to food.

Many people who suffer from seasonal allergies have allergy headaches too. The best way to tell the difference between an allergy headache and a migraine is to look at the symptoms of a migraine. A migraine is in intense headache, often located in one particular place on the head. The migraine is usually accompanied by nausea, and sometimes even vomiting. Some people who suffer from migraines become sensitive to touch on their arms and scalp. Migraines last for many hours, and even many days, and are not helped by medication.

Allergy headaches are usually triggered by allergies or changes in the air pressure. If you notice that your headache is seasonal, or occurs when the weather is changing, you probably have an allergy headache. The best treatment for these types of headaches is an allergy pain reliever type medication as this helps the pressure inside the brain to equalize with the air around it.

What can you do about an Allergy Headache?

If you have one of these headaches, try to figure out what is triggering it. If it is triggered by a food or other tangible substance, see your doctor. Food allergies are not something to mess around with, as they can be fatal. If the headache is triggered by seasonal allergies, then consider taking an over-the-counter allergy medication. This is a great treatment for all the symptoms of seasonal allergies. If the headache is triggered by weather changes, you will probably find that these allergy medications help this as well.

Allergy headaches are very common, and many people do not realize that a simple allergy medication can help relieve the intense pain of the headache. By keeping some allergy medication on hand, you can avoid the debilitating pain associated with these headaches.

What type of allergy medicine is best to treat allergy headaches? I feel like my eyes are going to explode along with my head. I get 10x more migraines during allergy season although Frova works most of the time.
