Seven Tips for Dealing with Spring Allergies
Corporate Communications

It’s spring in Ohio, which means not only is the weather especially unpredictable, but so is how your body reacts to the many allergens that are in the air this time of year. Here are seven tips to help you manage your exposure to allergens and mitigate their symptoms.

Reduce exposure to pollen

Pollen is one of the most common allergens to affect people with allergies. To limit your exposure to pollen, stay inside during the middle of the day, when pollen count is highest (10 a.m. – 4 p.m.). Dry your laundry either on an inside clothes line or in a dryer – not outside. Also, pets and shoes can track in pollen, so take your shoes off outside the door and wipe your pet’s fur down with a towel before bringing them inside.

Make the most of medicine

If you have watery eyes or a runny nose, over-the-counter antihistamines, such as Benadryl, Allegra or Zyrtec, will help relieve those symptoms. You can also opt for a nasal-spray antihistamine, such as Flonase. If you’re experiencing stuffiness instead, a decongestant such as Sudafed can help relieve those symptoms.

Wash your sheets in hot water 

Washing your sheets in hot water can kill germs and reduce allergens. The minimum water temperature for killing mites is 130 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Dry out 

Higher moisture worsens allergies and may lead to mold. Use a dehumidifier to help keep the air dry.

Limit lawn work 

Mowing the lawn or operating a leaf blower kicks up pollen and other allergens. Consider hiring outside help, and if you must work outside, consider wearing glasses and a surgical mask to keep allergens from entering your nose, mouth or eyes.

Keep doors and windows closed 

Using the air conditioner in both the car and home will limit outside allergens from entering.

Go outside after a good rain 

The best time to be outside during allergy season is after a good rain, when the precipitation has flushed the pollen and other allergens from the ground and other outside surfaces.
