Making Sense of Seasonal Allergies
posted by The Allergy and Immunology Team | April 26, 2016
Sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose
Hoarse voice, sore or itchy throat
Watery, irritated eyes
Moving to a new geographical location is usually not a lasting solution for combating seasonal allergies because allergens are everywhere. You can’t avoid an irritant, but you can lower your exposure factor to reduce symptom triggers.
Check pollen and mold counts before you plan outdoor activities, and avoid spending time outdoors during the morning when pollen counts are highest.
Wear sunglasses and a mask if you must do yard work during pollen season.
Change your clothing when you come indoors, and shower and wash your hair.
Close your home and car windows, and use air-conditioning.
Don’t allow outdoor pets on your furniture.
