Get ready for allergy season

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.

Spring Clean

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.
