Weekly Health Tips

FIGHTING FALL ALLERGIES

Posted: 09.27.2017

To help avoid seasonal allergy flare-ups, try the following tips. Plan ahead; if you have medication, start taking it about two weeks before symptoms usually appear. Avoid pollen; try not to bring allergens into the home. Take off your shoes when you come in, and if you've been outside playing or working, change clothes and shower to wash off any pollen sticking to your hair or body. Avoid excess outdoor chores and keep windows closed when counts are high. Prevent mold by minimizing moisture. Use fans and dehumidifiers to keep air drier. Consider an air purifier with a HEPA filter to help remove allergens from indoor air.
