Allergy Tip of the Day: Preventing Allergy Symptoms
If the right precautions are taken, there is no reason why even the worst allergy sufferers have to tolerate allergy symptoms. The American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology recommends the following tips to lessen allergy symptoms:

  • Do a thorough spring cleaning – windows, book shelves, and air conditioning vents collected dust and mold throughout the winter that can provoke allergy symptoms.
  • Postpone outdoor activities until later in the morning. Pollen is usually emitted between the hours of 5 am – 10 am.
  • If possible, use air conditioning instead of having windows open.
  • When traveling in a car, have the windows up and the air conditioning on.
  • Stay indoors on hot, dry and windy days.
  • Don’t hang your laundry out to dry. Allergens will collect on them.
  • Do not mow the lawn or rake leaves without a filter mask.
  • Wash bedding weekly in hot water.
  • Shower and wash your hair every night before going to bed.
  • Remove visible mold with non-toxic cleaning products.
  • Beware of high mold spore counts after a heavy rain or in the evening.
