Spring Ahead of Allergies 

It’s the perfect time for cleaning, yard work and outdoor activities. Unfortunately, it’s also time for allergy season. Pollen and other allergens can trigger sniffles, sneezing, scratchy throats and watery eyes. Avoid allergies this season with these tips from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.

Inside

Close windows at night to keep pollen and molds from drifting into the house. Dry the air with an air conditioner. This helps keep irritating allergens from growing in your home.

Try to keep your pets clean and out of your bedroom if they bother your allergies. Also, avoid hanging clothes or sheets outside to dry because pollen can collect on them.

Outside

Avoid doing yard work or physical activities in the morning. It’s when the most allergens are released. Also, stay inside on windy or humid days when pollen and mold counts are highest

Talk to your doctor about taking medication if your allergy symptoms are getting in the way of your daily life.
