Springtime is the season of allergies

Springtime is the season of allergies. Pollens are every where. If you are susceptible to allergies, then I have a few tips for you.

  • Stay indoors on dry, windy days — the best time to go outside is after a good rain, which helps clear pollen from the air.
  • No lawn mowing, weed pulling and other gardening chores
  • Remove clothes you've worn outside. You may also want to shower to rinse pollen from your skin and hair.
  • Ban your pets from your bed or couch.
  • Don't hang laundry outside — pollen can stick to sheets and towels.
  • If you do outside chores, wear a dust mask.
  • Run the air conditioning in your house and car.
  • Vacuum carpets weekly
