You're tired of being stuck indoors. Cold weather has you longing for spring, even if that does mean worsening allergies. In fact, you may already be suffering from allergies despite the lack of pollen in the air. Dust mites, pet dander, pest droppings and other household allergens can trigger the same symptoms as pollen and other environmental allergens. Stale indoor air can even worsen symptoms and cause other health issues.

If congestion, sneezing, watery eyes and other allergy symptoms have you constantly running to the drugstore, it's worth investigating and treating the causes of your environmental allergies. Fatigue from your symptoms can slow you down and impact your daily routine. This is actually the time to tackle household chores with a vengeance, since a dust mite allergy or other reaction to indoor allergens can lead to cracked skin or nosebleeds. These seemingly benign symptoms can lead to more worrisome infections

Follow these tips from Asthma and Allergy Physicians of Rhode Island to learn how you can keep environmental allergens at bay...
