Allergy Relief Begins at Home

Sure, take your prescription antihistamines and over-the-counter allergy medications.  After all, it’s a sneezy itchy mess out there.  But according to WebMD Health News, 60% of people with springtime allergies have limited success treating their symptoms, by any means.  There is “no single magic bullet” to eliminate allergy attacks.

The key to reducing allergy symptoms is to avoid contact with irritants like dust mites, dust, mold, smoke, pollen and animal dander all together.  Easier said than done!  So, you can at least reduce contact with these allergens by taking a few precautions to round them up or keep them out of your house to begin with.

Allergy Relief Products that Work at Home

HEPA Air Purifiers and Ionizers – High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filter devices and air cleaners range in all sizes from table-top to room size and capture nearly all types of pollutants.  A must for serious allergy sufferers.

Humidifiers/Vaporizers –  Keeping humidity low helps control dust mites (the leading cause of nasal allergies), but too-dry air can irritate nasal passages and make allergy symptoms worse.  Best to regulate the humidity in your home to between 30% and 50%.  Keep tabs on your moisture levels with a Mold Alert Thermometer/Hygrometer.

Allergy-Free Bedding – Shop for mattress covers, hypoallergenic bed pillows, support pillows and pillow covers.  All designed to block out allergen molecules while still allowing air to pass through.  Dust mites don’t have a chance.

Over-the-Counter Allergy Medicines – Allegro carries many name brand and generic allergy relief medications.  Check out our selection and save on generic brands with the same active ingredients as your favorite name brands!
