Benadryl Allergy Relief Plus Decongestant Capsules – 12 Capsules
Benadryl Allergy Relief Plus Decongestant Capsules are a form of medicine that is designed to treat symptoms associated with allergies such as hay fever. The capsules contain 2 active ingredients that help to provide relief, acrivastine and pseudoephedrine. Acrivastine is an antihistamine that works to reduce allergy symptoms and pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that helps to reduce sinus congestion and a blocked nose.
How does a blocked nose occur?
Unlike what some may believe, a blocked nose doesn’t happen because of mucus production in the nose, but instead because of inflamed blood vessels. Inflamed blood vessels can happen because of a virus, such as a cold or the flu, or an allergy. When the body comes into contact with a substance that triggers an allergic reaction, the immune system responds by releasing chemicals into the body. This includes a chemical called histamine. Histamine is the cause of many of the symptoms associated with an allergy, included enlarged blood vessels. This is done to reduce blood pressure and help blood flow.
