Seasonal Allergies

We can't escape the seasonal allergies. Most of us experience a runny nose, sneezing, and congestion. Even though allergies can make you miserable there are things you can do to keep them under control.

With high winds, which we have been experiencing lately, try to stay indoors. If you do go outside try to avoid any activity in the morning as the pollen count increases at that time.  Also, make sure to keep all your windows and doors closed when you are at home so the wind isn't bringing all that pollen into your house. You can't get rid of all allergens in your home but it's a good idea to use the air conditioning, regularly change the filters, and use a vacuum to get out the dirt and dust. At the end of the day, take a shower and throw those clothes in the dirty laundry pile to get rid of all that pollen. 

Now if you know you are a allergy person, talk with your doctor about what you can be taking to decrease them. There are a lot of over the counter medications you may take, so next time you are at your pharmacy ask what would be the best option for you. It's important to be taking the medications consistently so they are working properly.
