Glad for Spring, Sad for Allergies
Wednesday, May 10, 2017
In the Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana region, allergies are just as much a sign of the season as flowers. As the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S., allergies can make it difficult to enjoy the warmer weather.
Common signs that you might suffer from allergies include:
· Running Nose
· Itchy eyes
Even though allergies can be attributed to everything from flowers to grasses to mold and even trees, there are still ways to reduce your misery. Here are a few recommendations to minimize your exposure:
· Postpone outdoor activities until after 11am. Pollens are usually emitted 5-10am.
· Don’t mow the law or do yardwork without wearing a filter mask. When you’re done, remove your yard clothes outside and put them directly in the wash. Immediately take a shower to wash the allergens from your skin.
· Use your air conditioning instead of opening windows at home or in the car.
· Keep track of the local pollen count and stay indoors on days the count is high.
· Stay indoors on hot, dry, windy days when pollen is at its worst.
· Don’t wear shoes indoors.
· Wash bedding weekly in hot water.
· Shower and wash you hair every night before bed.
