If you suffer from allergies, you know how annoying they are.
People who have allergies experience a lot of frustration and pain. Happily, there are now a number of options available for coping with allergies. Keep on reading to figure out what options you have.
A good way to lessen your allergy symptoms is to never use an attic fan. This is important to avoid because these fans draw air into your house and in doing so, it will draw in a number of other allergens, such as pollen.
Keep your windows closed during the daytime hours because it is the time that pollen is most prevalent. Instead of allowing those particles from outside to enter your home, you should instead turn your air conditioner on. The AC will not only provide cooler air, but its filter will help to get rid of some of the allergy-causing particles already in the home.
Wash allergens off with a shower before bedtime. Throughout the day, you’re going to accumulate a lot of different substances on your skin, like pollen, dust mites and dander, which could cause an allergic reaction at night. You don’t need to soak in a tub. A fast shower will do the trick.
Close all open windows. Make sure dust or other particles from outdoors doesn’t collect in your home. Don’t keep the windows open for a long period of time, or more allergens will come in.
A lot of people are allergic to their pets due to the dander they carry. If this is the case, give your dog or cat or any other pet a bath on a consistent basis. Animal dander is probably the reason for your symptoms, and bathing can help keep the problem at bay. Try not to give your pet a bath yourself, because the process of doing so might spark an allergy attack.
The location and time of the day you exercise can be a trigger for allergy symptoms. The harder and longer you exercise, the more difficult it becomes to breathe. Exercise inside or during off-peak pollen hours to cut back on your exposure to allergens.
To find out what you are allergic to, you should pay a visit to an allergist so he can perform a skin test. Skin tests help you determine which allergens trigger the allergic response, whether it be dogs or pollen. When you understand what is at the root of allergic reactions, it is possible to alter the way you live to stay away from them.
Lay off the dairy for a while. It’s known fact that dairy products can trigger allergies, so try foregoing the ice cream and milk for a bit and see what kinds of changes you feel.
