Hay fever is a common allergy that affects millions of people worldwide, and it is caused by an allergic reaction to pollen and other airborne allergens. Symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and congestion, which can make daily life uncomfortable.
If you suffer from hay fever, here are some tips for reducing your symptoms:
- Avoid outdoor activities during high pollen count periods: Pollen counts are highest during the early morning and late afternoon, so try to stay indoors during these times. Check the local weather forecast or pollen count to plan outdoor activities.
- Keep windows and doors closed: Keep your home and car windows closed during high pollen count periods to prevent pollen from entering.
- Air filtration: Air filtration, such as an MVHR system, can also help to filter out pollen and other allergens.
- Take a shower and change clothes: When you come indoors, take a shower and change your clothes to remove any pollen that may have accumulated on your skin and clothing.
- Use a nasal rinse: Nasal rinses can help to remove pollen and other allergens from your nasal passages, reducing congestion and other symptoms.
- Keep your home clean: Regularly clean your home, including dusting and vacuuming, to reduce the amount of pollen and other allergens in your environment.
- Consider allergy medication: If your symptoms are severe, over-the-counter or prescription allergy medication may be necessary to alleviate your symptoms.
