Spring is a truly beautiful season and it has many perks, but many people dread it because pollen levels tend to through the roof once this season arrives. Spring isn’t so pleasant when you’re dealing with seasonal allergies, but there are things you can do to keep your symptoms in check.
Pollen levels tend to go up and down during the day, so always make sure to check the pollen forecast before heading outdoors.
We all want to head out and enjoy the good weather once spring is finally here, but you shouldn’t spend too much time outdoors during dry and windy days when pollen levels are at their peak.
Change Your Clothes
The tricky thing about pollen is that it tends to catch on your clothes and skin, so it’s a good idea to take a shower and change your clothes as soon as you’re back home.
If you’re looking for a way to circulate air in your home and car, it’s best to use A/C instead of having your windows wide open because you’ll just be inviting pollen inside.
If your symptoms aren’t any better despite all attempts to reduce pollen exposure, using over-the-counter medications, such as nasal sprays, or asking your doctor for help is always an option.
