Coping with Pollen Allergies
Sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, hay fever - these symptoms are all too familiar to those who suffer from pollen allergies (trees, grass or weeds). Below are five tips from Verywell Health to help you lessen the allergy symptoms this summer:

  1. Pay attention to pollen counts for your area (you can find pollen reports on the local weather network). When pollen counts are high, stay indoors as much as you can. Pollen counts tend to be highest early morning to midday as well as on warm, windy days and lowest on rainy days.
  2. If you go outside during the times of high pollen counts, remove the clothes that you have worn when you get home and shower to rinse the pollen from your skin and hair.
  3. Keep the windows closed and the air conditioning on at home and in the car to keep pollen from blowing into your home/car through the windows.
  4. Vacuum and dust your home frequently to keep pollen levels down as pollen often collects in dust.
  5. Avoid hanging laundry outside to dry as pollen can stick to clothing, sheets, and towels.
