Here are a few tips that can help prevent you from having to bear with hay fever.

Pollen and dust

Pollen and dust that cause allergic rhinitis

  • Avoid pollen. Pollen is the number one cause for most cases of hay fever. You can do this by wearing a mask when doing outdoor activities in the spring or summer (the season with most pollen) like mowing the lawn, raking dried leaves and gardening. Avoid inhaling pollen during days with strong winds and even when you are in your car by closing the windows a bit. You can also protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. Lastly, avoid bringing in fresh flowers into the house.
  • Avoid dust and dust mites. Clean your carpet regularly with the use of a powerful vacuum cleaner. You can also remove dust and dust mites from your bed linens by beating comforters and mattresses with a paddle. Just make sure to wear a mask while doing this and to do the paddling outside to keep the dust and dust mites out of the house.
  • Avoid pet dander by giving your pet a regular bath. As much as possible, don’t let them inside your bedroom and designate a permanent place for them to take their rest.
