Spring is officially here, which means April showers, May flowers, and dreaded seasonal allergies for millions of people. Fortunately, there are several ways you can make it through allergy season. By taking a few steps to prepare, you can enjoy the best of what spring has to offer.
Your Spring Allergy Solutions
1. Dress Appropriately
Never leave home without a hat and sunglasses. They’ll limit the amount of pollen that blows into your eyes.
2. Eat Healthily
Did you know certain foods may help prevent spring allergies? Fill up your plate with nuts, apples, fish, red grapes, and tomatoes. These specific foods are full of nutrients to keep you healthy while easing your allergy symptoms.
3. Know Your Pollen Count
Pollen counts are typically at their highest on warm and windy days, so consider getting rescheduling outdoor activities for when conditions are better. To learn Utah’s pollen count and how to reduce pollen exposure, head to Intermountain Allergy & Asthma.
4. Clean Your Home’s Air
Make your home an allergen-free zone by cleaning regularly and investing in a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate) air filter to remove harmful irritants. Consider buying houseplants that scrub and clean the indoor air from pollutants. We recommend English Ivy, Bamboo, and snake plants.
5. Get Help
If your symptoms persist, you’ll want to get help from your family doctor. Also, try some OTC remedies like eye drops or oral antihistamines.
