If you are one of the thousands of people who live with seasonal allergies then you understand the problems that they can cause on a daily basis. I myself have suffered from seasonal allergies all of my life. There are many days that I find myself with itchy or watering eyes, a nose that won’t stop running, or a dry scratchy throat. I usually spend the day trying to avoid going outside and have even missed out on fun activities to avoid having allergy problems. I started doing some research and found some great information about coping with seasonal allergies from Premier Allergy. They have some great resources if allergies are causing a problem in your life.
Reduce Allergens in Your Home
Reducing the allergens in your home is a great way to create an allergen-free zone space. Things that help keep allergens out of your home typically focus on removing items that may be hiding allergens. Remove your shoes when you come to your home to reduce the spread of allergens from the outdoors to carpets and floors inside. Remove your clothing and take a shower when returning home, change clothing and put the clothing you wore that day directly into the wash. This will reduce any allergens being transferred to furniture in your home. These simple things can keep your home safe from harmful allergens.
Avoid Allergens Outside
Dr. Summit Shah, founder of Premier Allergy, tree and flower pollens are one of the biggest contributors to seasonal allergies and these pollens can travel anywhere from 50-100 miles on a windy day. It is really impossible to completely avoid pollen and allergens when outdoors but you can reduce your exposure. Avoid being outside during peak pollen times. You can find the information about pollen counts online. When you are outdoors wearing a hat to help block some pollen from making contact with your face is a great tip. Avoid areas that have high pollen counts.
Know Your Allergies
One of the best ways to reduce your exposure to allergens is to know your allergies. Spend time with your doctor to learn what allergens are causing your symptoms. What pollens you are more susceptible to. Once you know what allergens you should avoid you can do some research on those allergens. Learn when they are highest, what places to avoid, the best ways to reduce symptoms, and more.
If you suffer from allergies than finding a way to relieve your symptoms is a big concern. I know personally that coping with my allergies is a daily problem. There are many different treatments available for allergies and finding the things that work best for you is the key to success when coping with seasonal allergies. I have found some really great resources from Premier Allergy and would recommend if you are looking for some good information or tools to combat your allergies I suggest looking them up. Dr. Summit Shah has some great tools and tips to share.
