today’s blog post comes to you through the pain and suffering that is caused by the wonderful ailment – hayfever πŸ™ƒ

you know, that horrible allergy that raises it’s ugly head after you’ve spent a fantastic day looking at supercars πŸ™ŠπŸŽ … urgh, please go away fever of the hay. 

#tdil just how those wonderful things called eye drops work πŸ‘€. 

is there anything better than the soothing feel of an eye drop when your eyes are bright red and burning? (if you don’t know the answer … it’s no). but how do they actually work?! how do they get their soothy goodness?! i thought i’d find out πŸ€™πŸ»

in order to understand how they work, you must first understand what actually happens when your eyes start to itch due to an allergy.

basically, during a period of hay fever goodness (other any other allergy) a protein named ‘histamine’ is released by your body’s immune system. histamines act to get rid of things that are bothering you – like allergies – by any means necessary … they sometimes overreact a little πŸ˜….

to remove the allergens from your skin or out of your body they’ll stop at nothing, hence the sneezing, itching and eye watering that you experience during hay fever. 

this is where eye drops come in … in order to stop your body’s histamine bodyguards, you need some antihistamines 😏. you’ll never guess what – eye drops contain antihistamines πŸ™ˆ #didntseethatcoming. 

you know, i wanted to say a bit more about this last bit … but there isn’t much more to it than that! even if your allergy is nothing more than a bit irritating, your body can still overreact a bit πŸ˜’. at that point, histamines go a bit mental and you need antihistamines to fix the whole deal πŸ™‚.

slight anticlimax … but interesting nonetheless 😌 don’t have long to get this published, so i best get it live! hope you enjoyed 😏

bye bye πŸ€— #tdil
