With spring and summer approaching us that means warm weather and spending more time outside. However, it also means spring allergies. Spring allergies can be from a wide variety of reactants. The most common are from tree pollen, dust and plant spores. They can cause a reaction such as itching or sneezing. Here are some simple and easy ways to help prevent your spring allergies from taking control of your life.

 

Tip 1: One way to avoid having your allergies get to bad is to leave doors and windows closed on days that have a high pollen count or even just leave them closed for all of spring to stay safe. Also think about putting allergy filters on your air conditioners. These will help to reduce the amount of pollen and dust in the air.  

 

Tip 2: Avoid going outside and exposing yourself to the triggers of your allergies. If you have to go outside, when you come in take a shower and wash your clothes to get rid of the pollen and other things that you are allergic too.

 

Tip 5: If avoiding having your allergies does not work, try an over the counter medicine to help. The two top rated medications are Claritin and Zyrtec. Both of these are antihistamines and will help to reduce itching, sneezing and other allergy symptoms.

 

Tip 4: If you severe allergies think about going to your doctor and talking about getting a more effective solution. This could be allergy shots, prescribed medicine or something else.
