Like many others, I’m always anxiously anticipating spring’s arrival. Warm weather, green grass, flowers …. finally! While this has been a strange spring thus far, what a terrible time to be dealing with the normal thing that many of us suffer from in the spring : allergy symptoms. Fortunately, most of us that suffer from allergies know the telltale signs : Eyes itching and watering, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, sore throat. I deal with it in the spring and in the fall, and get into a solid routine of Claritan and Singulair. Flonase is also a great help.
What can we do indoors to help alleviate some of these allergies!?
– Shut the windows
– Take shoes off before coming inside
– Change AC Filters
– Vacuum (preferably with a HEPA filter), mop, and dust weekly
– Put HEPA air purifiers throughout your home
– Carpet holds dust and dirt, consider hardwoods, tile, or vinyl flooring if you allergies are really bad
Hang in there! As for me, I still open up the windows and spend as much time as possible outside, and just deal with the stuffy nose and headache!! It’s an okay trade-off for the warm sunshine and Vitamin D.
