Allergy season is coming up and with the change of season can come some
pretty uncomfortable symptoms. From symptoms to prevention, here’s
what to know to help you cope with your seasonal allergies before they
take over your daily life.
Know Your Triggers
The best way to ensure your allergies don’t wreak havoc on your day-to-day
life is to know your most common triggers. For some staying indoors on
dry, windy days might be best. If your allergies are severe, you may want
to visit an allergist to correctly pinpoint your biggest triggers so that
you can avoid them.
To ensure you are not bringing in any other allergens with you, take off
your jacket and shoes as soon as you go inside, leaving your shoes at
the door. Wash your hands and shower often to remove any outdoor allergens.
Wash your pets more often, and vacuum and clean throughout the week. You
also will want to change your HVAC systems filter to ensure it’s
working, as it should provide you with clean, allergy free air.
Notice Pollen Counts
One great habit to get into is tracking the pollen count using a mobile
app or online. Knowing what days will be particularly bad can help you
avoid what triggers your symptoms.
Know When It’s More Than Allergies
Sometimes what you might think are allergies could be a lingering cold.
If you have clear or watery mucus, itchy watery eyes, the symptoms appear
in certain situations, or sniffles that last longer than a week, you are
most likely suffering from allergy symptoms.
