Springtime seasonal allergies can be bothersome, presenting with common symptoms like constant sneezing and a runny nose. If you breathing problems like asthma or COPD, seasonal allergies can take a toll on your health.
Here are some ways to prepare yourself for seasonal allergies:
Reduce Your Exposure
Allergens like pollen are higher in count during springtime, therefore try to avoid going outside during the allergy season. You should especially avoid stepping out when it’s windy, as that could mean more pollen and other allergens in the air.
Use a Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier can help ensure the air inside your home is free of allergens. Invest in a dehumidifier if you get sick every time the season comes around. It helps keeps the air free of moisture, which reduces the presence of allergens. Alternatively, you can invest in efficient filters in your air conditioners to reduce allergens.
Use Nasal Irrigation
Nasal irrigation involves using a saline solution to rinse your nasal passages and clear them out. This is proven to be very effective for people who suffer from seasonal allergies. You can use a neti pot for this or some other nasal irrigation device available in local pharmacies. You should also make sure you’re washing it with distilled water after every use.
Strengthen Immune System
One of the best preventive measures you can take to avoid allergic symptoms during springtime is using supplements to help improve your immune system. Try using natural supplements designed specifically for seasonal allergies.
