Tips for Surviving Allergy Season

Springtime is here! And with the coming of warm weather, blooming flowers and new life also comes the sniffling, sneezing, and watering, itchy eyes of seasonal allergies. From pollen to dust to grass, airborne allergens typically peak at this time of year. So how do you make your allergy misery more bearable? Here are some helpful tips to help keep your allergies under control!

 

1) Confirm if it's really seasonal allergies and not the cold. Since allergies and colds share many of the same symptoms, it can be difficult to figure out what you have. A tip-off for allergies is your symptoms worsening when exposed to common allergen triggers. An absence of fever and aches can also point to allergies rather than a cold or virus.

 

2) Cut down on pollen/allergen exposure. You can't sneeze at what's not there! Take your shoes off before you come inside your home so you don't bring in extra pollen. If you have a pet that goes outside, wipe its fur off before it comes back in. Avoid line-drying your clothes outside as they'll bring in extra pollen.

 

3) Be extra vigilant when outdoors. Pollen levels tend to peak in the afternoon, so if you want to work out, try fitting your run or activity in early in the morning or later in the evening to minimize pollen exposure. If pollen levels are high and staying outdoors becomes unbearable, try exercising indoors instead.

 

4) Head to your local pharmacy or drugstore for symptom relief. Your usual allergy medication may be less effective if your symptoms are worsening, so you may need to try out different kinds of medication to get relief. If over-the-counter medications don't work for you, or if your allergies are really making you suffer, consult an allergy specialist who can prescribe more effective drugs.

 

5) Plant an allergy friendly garden. Get rid of allergen-producing weeds from your yard and plant allergy-friendly plants such as azaleas, begonias, hibiscus and yucca shrubs. Palms, pines, fir and dogwood trees are also friendly for allergy sufferers.
