Springtime Precautions: What to Look For

St. Louis, Missouri (April 9th, 2018)- With Spring being in full swing, it brings warmer weather, flowers, and outdoor activities. On the other hand, Spring brings storms and allergies as well. It is important to be aware of the potential hazards that can come along this time of year and know what to do to if a situation were to occur. With the weather being warmer, many people tend to go mushroom “hunting” looking to make a delicious meal out of their treasures. While this can be a fun activity, it is key to know the difference in the mushroom types to prevent eating poisonous mushrooms. If the wrong type of mushroom is consumed, it could lead to nausea, vomiting, and emergency room visits. Another hazard that most people do not think about as harmful would be Benadryl® overdoses. With allergies being in full effect this time of year, Benadryl® is used to treat itching, hives, URI symptoms, motion sickness, and insomnia. People do not tend to realize that too much Benadryl® can lead to a diphenhydramine overdose because it can cause significant toxicity. This harmful substance has been increasingly affecting teenagers and young adults due to it being cheap and easy to obtain, being used as a hallucinogen as well as an attempt at suicide. Be aware of the potential hazards that Spring can bring along, and know...
