Controlling your allergies could one day be as simple as rubbing on a cream. A European study finds an ointment that's applied to the inside of the nose reduces hay fever symptoms by as much as 60%. The cream works by blocking allergens like pollen, dust and pet dander.
The cream is called Alergol, and it's getting a good review in the Journal For the Archives of Otolaryngology. There were 91 patients in the study between the ages of 19 and 55. All of them had confirmed hay fever for at least two years. Half of the patients applied Alergol four times a day for nine days the other half used a placebo cream. After that, the creams were switched.
In both phases of the study, patients who used the cream reported a 60% reduction in allergy symptoms compared to little change among those who used the fake cream.
