5 Steps to Allergy Free Spring:
1- Keep the outdoors outside:
· Keep windows closed, run the air conditioner instead
· Keep pets, and the pollens they carry around, out of the bedroom
2- The pollen count is highest in the morning. Limit exposure by doing yardwork and outdoor
exercise later in the day.
3- Wash yourself and your clothes after allergen exposure, especially when pollen counts are
4- Start anti-allergy medications before allergy season starts. These medications include oral
anti-histamines and nasal sprays. Nasal/sinus rinses are also very helpful.
5- Allergen immunotherapy for allergies unresponsive to medications.
