Help Prevent Spring Allergies

When the seasons change, many people suffer from seasonal allergies. As springtime approaches and flowers begin to bloom, pollen and allergens fill the air. To help combat this allergy season, follow the tips below:

  1. Wash your bedding every week in hot water and vacuum carpets frequently to reduce allergens in your home

  2. Take a shower and wash your hair each night because pollen easily accumulates in hair

  3. Use a dehumidifier to keep moisture out of the air

  4. Wear a dust mask when working outside

  5. Keep doors and windows closed as often as possible, at home and in the car

If these tips do not help you feel significantly better, consult a doctor. Do not call 9-1-1 over allergy related issues. Instead, visit your primary care doctor or an urgent care facility if your symptoms are severe.
