Allergy relief brand to help allergy sufferers share how they really feel
TORONTO, April 23, 2018/CNW/ - Nearly half of Canadian adults report being affected by seasonal or year-round allergies, according to a new study conducted by REACTINEŽ. Not only is half the population suffering, but the results reveal most allergy sufferers feel their symptoms
That's why, beyond providing physical relief, REACTINEŽ is going a step further and has submitted a formal proposal to the Unicode Consortium, the governing organization of emoji creation, for the first-ever "Allergy Feels" emoji.
As experts in all things allergy, REACTINEŽ understands how awful it can be to suffer from allergies. Besides the frustration of dealing with itchy, watery eyes, runny noses, headaches and hives, allergy sufferers spend precious time and energy trying to explain their symptoms to others. The allergy emoji aims to provide some emotional relief by capturing how allergies make people feel and providing sufferers with a tool to clearly convey the impact that allergies have on their daily life.
A Case for The Allergy Emoji: Key Findings from the 2018 Reactine Allergy Field Report
"We know that seasonal allergies can make people feel pretty miserable," says Dr. Susan Waserman, a Canadian Allergist & Clinical Immunologist. "Allergy symptoms can be exhausting and have a real impact on mood and quality of life, by interfering with sleep, work and social activity. And yet, this recent study found that 1 in 5 allergy sufferers do not use any sort of treatment. There's no need to suffer or be stuck indoors this allergy season. You can be proactive about managing your allergies by using an oral antihistamine, like REACTINEŽ, when you know the start of allergy season is beginning, expect to be exposed to allergens or at the onset of symptoms."
Make the Allergy Emoji A Reality
To support the creation of the allergy emoji, REACTINEŽ started an online petition and is asking the public to share their #AllergyFeels stories on social media. To sign the petition, please visit change.org.
REACTINEŽ works fast and lasts providing 24-hour relief of symptoms such as: itchy eyes, watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy nose, itchy throat, allergic skin itch and hives. REACTINEŽ is owned by Toronto, ON-based, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, division of Johnson & Johnson Inc.
