Try out these tips to survive allergy season.

If you have seasonal allergies, then spring and summer can be a rough time for you.  If your allergy symptoms are acting up, then you might be feeling helpless and frustrated.  Fortunately, there are some things that you can do to make your symptoms more manageable.  Try out these tips to survive allergy season.

  • Change Your Clothes When You Get Home

While there’s little you can do about the allergens in the outside air, you can make your home an allergen-free zone.  One way to prevent allergens from infiltrating your home is by changing clothes as soon as you return from a day out.  This will prevent the allergens that cling to your clothing from spreading throughout your home.  Make sure you do your wash regularly to eliminate the sneeze-inducing particles from your favorite outfits.

  • Learn What Triggers Your Allergies

While pollen is one of the main triggers for those who suffer from seasonal allergies, not all pollen is alike.  In fact, it’s possible for a person to be triggered by one type of pollen, but be completely immune to other types.  To figure out exactly what causes your reactions, ask your doctor about tests that can help you pinpoint your trigger.  Once you know what causes your allergies, you can do a better job of avoiding it.

  • Take Medication

If your allergies are particularly severe, then you should consider taking medication to help you alleviate your symptoms.  If you’ve tried medication in the past with less than favorable results, it’s possible that you were simply taking drugs that were incompatible with your symptom.  Speak to your doctor about putting together a combination of medications that will help you deal with your symptoms.
