While the rain has been awesome this Spring, the wind definitely has not. Well Hello little allergies, where have you been all Winter. Can’t say I missed you. Our Panhandle weather seems to only make allergy sufferers more miserable. It’s the peak season for grasses, ragweed, and tree pollen’s. So, what can we do to help our symptoms? Here are a few tips that might help!
- Shower more frequently. It might help to take 2 showers a day. Shower at night, that way you won’t spread any pollen into your bed.
- Wipe your face when you’ve been out. Carry some wipes with you during allergy season and just wipe your face off when you come indoors. Also consider a saline rinse for your sinuses.
- Stay hydrated. Allergy symptoms get worse when we dehydrate.
- Keep windows closed so pollen can’t travel indoors
- Pollen levels are higher at dusk and in the morning. So avoid going outside those times of day.
- Finally, don’t forget to monitor the pollen count in your area and avoid being outdoors as much as possible when pollen’s are at their highest.
