It’s almost that time of year again: allergy season. No one enjoys the dreaded swollen red eyes, runny noses, and itchy throats. Of course we can protect ourselves with the different allergy medicines and avoiding certain foods, but are we able to protect ourselves for what is being anticipated as worst allergy season ever?
What makes this allergy season different from the ones in past years? Well its simple, the problem is climate change. With the dramatic fluctuations in temperatures and increased precipitation, means that plants are releasing more and more pollen than they ever have.
So in order to protect yourself from the itching, sniffing, and sneezing that come from allergies, here are 5 tips for protecting yourself against the worst allergy season ever.
1. Avoid going outside when the pollen count is high
There are websites, TV channels, and radio stations that can keep you updated on the pollen count in regions. You should avoid trees, such as cedar and elm, during the early spring when they release their pollen. Grass, on the other hand, pollinates in April, and should be avoided then. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should lock yourself in the house! Pollen count is typically high in the early evening, so it may be best to avoid going outside then.
2. Switch on the air conditioner
When we are outside, allergens can attach onto our clothes. This means that you bring allergens indoors, when entering your house. An air conditioner will not only keep your home cool, but it will help filter the allergens in your house and get rid of any mould carrying moisture. Unlike a fan, the AC keeps the house cool and dry making for the perfect environment to get rid of allergens.
3. Prevent pollen and mould carrying moisture from getting into the house
The best way to prevent allergens from entering the house is to close all of the doors and windows. The exception to this rule is when you take a shower. Turn on a fan and slightly open a window when showering, in order to expel the moisture being released into the air. You must limit the amount of moisture in the air when you shower, because it will greatly reduce the chances of mould growing in your home. Moreover, your thermostat should be kept at temperatures that are neither too low nor too high. Temperatures that are too low encourage the growth of mould, while temperatures that are too high temperatures will likely bother you.
4. Keep dust out
Most allergy sufferers are very sensitive to dust. Some of the measures you can take to keep dust out of the house include vacuuming the floors, insisting that people take off their shoes before entering your home, and discarding clothes that you have not worn in a long time.
5. Avoid foods that come in contact with pollen
There are many types of food, especially fruit, that come in contact with pollen before you consume them. Do your research to know which foods may make your allergies worse, and avoid them.
