You Can Beat The Worse Allergies In Any Season With These 5 Tips!

You Can Beat The Worse Allergies In Any Season With These 5 Tips!

Allergies use to have just a season, but you can experience them at any time. For me, I use to be at one time of the year when mine acted up, but now you can hear me coughing, sneezing and having those watery eyes like every other American. There are things you can explore like using the right fabrics and thermal curtains, but in many cases for some, there is no cure for many of the allergies, just relief.  Before you go nuts trying to figure out if you are suffering from allergies, you should always be under the direct supervision of a trained physician. Summit Shah, a leader in his field from Premier Allergy, is well known and eager to help you treat your allergies.

Like to live outdoors? You will find that going outside is not optimal, but you have no choice. Many Americans can experience hay fever, which is caused by the elements outdoors. You should wear sunglasses. By wearing sunglasses they can reduce the number of allergens that get into your eyes. Which can help reduce the irritated and watery eyes you might get.

Reduce the allergens in your home! You can reduce the number of allergens by reducing a few things in your home, for example, get rid of the pollen producing plants. Your thinking, I just got fresh cut flowers this is not a time to get rid of them. It’s not just from store bought plants as much as the indoor potted plants such as shrubs and trees. The soil is known to carry mold spores, which could be one of the causes of the allergy symptoms you might be feeling. Kill many mites by putting it thru the Hot Rinse cycle in your washer. One of the biggest causes of allergies can be Dust. These lovely microscopic friends can live on your clothing, bedding and kids stuffed toys. Keep the dust insects at a minimum and wash those materials at least once a week to reduce the effects of this allergy.

Take Vacation when it Peaks Pollen Season! Have you ever walked outside and seen your car during peak pollen season? Yea your vehicle can be covered in that green/yellow dust which has you leaving sneezing and coughing all over the place. You can try to reduce your risk by taking a vacation during this time. Some of the best places to go are to the beach, that’s always a great escape since it has less pollen producing areas. When all else fails you can always stay inside.

Keep in Mind of your locations at any time, even during travel season. We cannot escape being exposed to the elements. This means you have to travel wisely during peak seasons. Like I pointed out you can avoid being outdoors but you can reduce your risk. Before you go out start your car and turn on your air conditioner. Less time for allergens outdoor is during the morning and evenings. Beware of the allergy counts in your destination if for pleasure or for work.

Try and keep your home Allergan free! When you suffer from allergies, keeping a clean home is very important and doing some simple housekeeping can help you keep you from those pesky symptoms you may be facing. Keep those high-risk areas clean such as windows, curtains, and blinds. Use your vacuum and wipe down these areas with diluted bleach and always wear a mask when cleaning.
Just changing a few steps in your daily routine will help you fight your allergies!!!
