Spring Allergies

The weather is warming up now that Spring has arrived. But have you been plagued by springtime allergies? The biggest spring allergy trigger is pollen. Trees, grasses, and weeds release these tiny grains into the air to fertilize other plants, but when we breathe them in, we get symptoms such as nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy nose, sneezing, and itchy, watery eyes. Fortunately, we have provided you with some ideas to help alleviate these symptoms.

-Keep windows closed and run the air conditioner if you’re allergic to pollen. Don’t use fans since they can stir up dust.

-Wash your bedding every week in hot water.

-Vacuum once or twice a week.

-Take fewer walks in wooded areas or gardens.

-When you come back inside, take a shower, wash your hair, and change your clothes. That’ll get rid of pollen that may have collected in your clothes and hair.

-Drink more. The extra fluid can thin the mucus in your nasal passages and give you some relief.
