Allergy Tip of the Day: Avoid Allergens
Lifestyle changes can help limit your contact with your allergy triggers (allergens). What you need to do depends on what causes your symptoms. Before you see your allergist, keep a log of your symptoms to discuss at your appointment.
You might get relief by removing carpets, running an air conditioner, and vacuuming. A dehumidifier may help with dust mites or mold. It is not always necessary to get rid of pets. Instead, think about creating an allergy-free zone in your home where animals aren’t allowed, especially the bedrooms.
You can’t get rid of all allergens. But you can limit how much you’re around them to help your symptoms.
