Coping with Spring Allergies
Coping with Spring Allergies
April showers brings May flowers. For many people, a spring seasonal transition isn't a welcomed time. The allergy season starts for many when flowers start blooming. It is possible to survive this season with a few survival tips 1.
- Educate yourself about allergens
- Reduce exposure to allergens
- Consider using over the counter remedies
- Consider receiving an allergy shot
Those tiny pollen grains floating through the air are what makes life miserable for people with allergies. The pollen rate is typically worse on windy days as the light pollen gets picked up and travels with the wind. The pollen is so light that a even slight breeze can make thousands of spores go airborne.
According to Sakina Bajowala MD, an allergist, pollen counts tend to be higher between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. so staying indoors at those peak hours can drastically reduce your exposure. Some tips to avoid pollen is to monitor pollen counts via local news stations, shower before bed to avoid bringing pollen into the bedding, and wash or wipe down items that have been exposed to pollen such as pets, hands, or clothes 2. Let Allegro Medical make this seasonal transition painless with some proven allergy stopping products.

This is a great air purifier. I have one for home and one at work. You can hit a button to run it for a couple hours and it will shut off. This is great if you don't need to run it continuously. They also make a smaller unit but this is quieter. I also like that I can shut off the ionizer or only run it for a couple hours at a time. We have 2 dogs and a cat and this keeps the pet hair and dust down nicely.
