Springtime Allergies: Nip Them in the Bud

Its that time of year again...allergy season!

Great. *le sigh*

Lucky for us, Mayo Clinic is here to help. They've got the answers to our "Help! I have allergies."-questions.

Reduce your exposure to pollen

There are a number of things that you can do to reduce your exposure to your allergy triggers:
  • Stay indoors on dry, windy days — the best time to go outside is after a good rain, which helps clear pollen from the air.  
  • Delegate lawn mowing, weed pulling and other gardening chores that stir up allergens.  
  • Remove clothes you've worn outside; you may also want to shower to rinse pollen from your skin and hair.  
  • Ban your pets from your bed or couch — pollen clings to pet fur.  
  • Don't hang laundry outside — pollen can stick to sheets and towels.  
  • If you do outside chores, wear a dust mask.
But, wait...There's more!
