Do you ever feel as if your allergies control your life? Here are five ways you can reclaim control.
1. Reduce your exposure to outdoor pollens.
- Limit your time outdoors, especially on windy days when pollen counts tend to be highest. When you breathe in the tiny pollen grains, they can trigger an allergic reaction.
- Delegate or hire someone to do outside lawn care that stir up allergens.
- If you go outside on a day with a high pollen count, be sure to shower and wash your hair to rinse off the pollen. Also put on fresh clothes.
