Warmer weather is coming to Jamison, Pennsylvania, and while that means no more heavy coats or snow and ice, it also means spring allergies. With these tips and tricks, you can combat your allergies without feeling miserable throughout the spring season.
Take Your Medicine
During most of the year, a runny nose often signals a cold. If it’s spring and you’re prone to allergies, however, you might have more than just a cold. Try taking an antihistamine, which helps block your body’s response to different allergens. If you need something a little stronger, a nasal spray can work well. Talk to your doctor about your options.
Don’t Let Allergens Inside
When spring arrives, you might be tempted to throw open the windows, turn on the fan, and let all those pesky allergens inside. Instead, keep your windows closed, take your shoes off when you head inside, and use your air conditioner to keep you cool and comfortable.
Keep Everyone and Everything Clean
Even if you usually keep your home clean, when it comes to allergies, squeaky clean is better. At the end of the day, take a shower to rinse off any pollen, dust, or other allergens that may cling to your skin and hair. Keep your house clean and vacuum the floors often. Don’t forget your pets. Give them frequent baths, since their fur can hold allergens if they spend any time outside.
Protect Your Home
The best defense against allergens is a good offense. Equip your home with different tools that will keep your air clean and your allergies in check. Consider an air cleaner for your home in order to get rid of bacteria, viruses, allergens, pollutants, and mold spores from the air you breathe. You can also add a UV light to kill mold and bacteria that grows on the indoor coils of your HVAC system.
