You are sure to have experienced this phenomena before. You may start with a small cough, but it leads to sniffles and eventually runny eyes and sneezes. You can experience these symptoms only during certain seasons. If all this sounds familiar, then it’s probably those dreaded allergies. Seasonal allergies are annoying and these tips can help you deal with them.
Nice weather often leads to open windows to let air circulate and lower air conditioning bills. But, doing so could exacerbate your allergies. The best way to do this is to put a HEPA filter on your air conditioner and it will get rid of your indoor allergens. This might not feel quite as fresh but it will help you breathe easier.
If at all possible, do not bring rugs or carpets into your home. Carpet and rugs collect dust mites, pollen and pet dander which can irritate allergies. Floors that can be efficiently cleaned are far more suitable when you have allergies.
If you have to have a pet make sure they do not have a lot of fur. All pets tend to upset allergies, but those that have long hair are worse to deal with. Another way to cut down on reactions to pet dander is to banish your dog or cat from your bed.
Ensure that your bathroom is well-ventilated to keep mold and mildew at bay. Moist, warm temperatures create a breeding ground for these common allergens. Wet towels should be hung up, and a fan should be turned on after showering. You could also open a window a little bit or turn on an air vent.
If you are going to be exercising outside during the times of the year that there are high pollen levels, do so either very early in the morning or late in the evening. Pollen count is usually lowest during these times, and you are going to feel far more comfortable.
If you experience allergy symptoms but are unaware of the source of your irritation, your household pet may be to blame. The gold standard for testing for pet allergies is to visit an allergy specialist and have a pet dander test done. If you pet is the cause, it is unlikely that you will have to go as far as getting rid of the pet. That said, you will likely have to change a few things.
In order to avoid allergy attacks, one of the things that you could do is to keep your automobile clean, and the windows closed. Using the air-conditioner, and keeping all vents closed will keep pollen and other allergens out. Keep the carpet and seats free from dust and dirt by vacuuming often. This can lessen allergy outbursts.
Now that you see the options available to you, it’s time to take action. Your days of having a sore throat and itchy eyes are over! The remedies in this article will help you tremendously. You can enjoy deep, allergen-free breaths. Do this by putting these tips to use.
