Spring is upon us, and allergy season has begun. Allergies can be inevitable when you can get them from outside or even in your own home. Below are some tips to help with allergies!
There are many over-the-counter medications that an individual can consider taking such as Claritin. It may be best to talk to your doctor and see which is the most appropriate for your symptoms. He or she may prescribe an oral medication or nasal spray.
It is important to wear gloves and a mask when cleaning, vacuuming or painting. This will limit how much dust and chemicals you are being exposed to. Vacuuming twice a week will especially help with limiting dust.
Rugs can obtain a lot of dust and even mold. It is better to have rugs that are washable to reduce this.
Keeping Your Indoor Air Clean
Changing your filters in air conditioning vents is very important. It is especially vital during allergy season. Make sure to keep windows closed to avoid pollen from entering your home.
Wash your bedding in hot water once a week. Washing your hair and taking a shower before going to bed will also help reduce allergies since pollen may get in your hair.
