Allergies can be a real nuisance, especially during the spring and summer months when pollen levels are at their highest. But there are some simple steps you can take to reduce your exposure to allergy triggers and minimize your symptoms. Stay indoors on dry, windy days. This is especially important if you're prone to allergies, as the wind can carry pollen and other allergens into your home.
If you must go outside, make sure to take off any clothing you've worn outdoors and take a shower to rinse pollen off your skin and hair. Additionally, avoid mowing lawns, uprooting grass, and other gardening tasks that could trigger allergens. When it comes to laundry, don't hang clothes outside. Pollen can stick to sheets and towels, so it's best to keep them indoors. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, it's best to avoid spicy Thai and Mexican dishes during high pollen levels.
This is because these dishes can irritate the throat and make allergy symptoms worse. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) is a great resource for people with asthma and allergies. Founded in 1953, it is the leading patient organization for people with asthma and allergies, and the oldest group of patients with asthma and allergy in the world.
