5 Best Tips and Products To Relieve Spring Allergies

5 Best Tips and Products To Relieve Spring Allergies
Linda Guerrera

If you're like me, you aren't exactly excited that spring is here. Every year, it's the same thing. The sun sets a little later, the air gets a little warmer, and I get a little congested. Then the watery eyes start, followed by sneezing and coughing, and before you know it, I'm searching for some sort of allergy relief.

While there are year-round allergens like dust, mold, and pet dander, seasonal allergies happen at a specific time of the year. Those budding trees are spreading a lot of pollen around. As an animal lover, I have always been so happy that I am not allergic to cats, dogs, or other animals. But the mere mention of spring makes me start to wheeze and my histamines go on red alert! A maple tree in full bloom makes me cringe. First-world problems, right? But, a problem nonetheless because being allergic to the outdoors can complicate your life.

So, what can we do to make sure that spring isn't something to dread? There are many ways to sail smoothly through this season of congestion. Let's take a look at a few.

  • Be Careful When Vacuuming – It is so important to make sure that any pollen brought into the house is cleaned away. But vacuuming can stir up a lot of those allergens and make you absolutely miserable. Wearing a mask while you clean and showering afterward will halt those allergens significantly.
  • Allergy Testing – Knowing exactly what you are allergic to can help you to avoid the allergen and allow you to breathe much easier. Your doctor or allergist can do an allergy test to pinpoint your triggers.
  • Stay Away From Mold – Spring is an excellent time for mold. The dampness of the earth thawing from winter's cold, and those April showers combined with warmer weather make the perfect conditions for mold to grow.
  • Shower When Coming In From Outdoors – Even if you have avoided your triggers all day, you may have come into contact with pollen somewhere, and it is sitting there on your clothes, skin, and hair. Showering will wash those allergens down the drain and keep your bed linens from trapping them.
  • Keep Your Windows Closed – Allergens are super-sneaky! They find their way into your home in any way they can. If your pets go outside, beware of the pollen stowaways in your pet's fur. You can track pollen indoors on your shoes, and allergens especially love open windows, which provide easy access to your home and make it much less of a sanctuary.

While these tips are great ways to prevent and manage allergies, what do you do when you are already under attack? Fortunately, many products are available that can help you live your life without feeling miserable.
