We are so thankful for Spring!! All this sunshine has put a little skip in our step this week, but if you are like 30% of all Americans, your allergies may be keeping you from enjoying Spring to its fullest. This weekend is the big Clean Sweep of Roc City, and we would love to have everyone out & about! To make sure you’re feeling your best, we’ve got some tips to help you fight those seasonal allergies!
What are YOU allergic to?
There are tons of different pollens that float through the air during the spring, and identifying which one triggers your attack may be your first line of defense! You can check online every day to find out which specific pollen counts are high! It may come as no surprise, but currently tree pollens are the biggest allergy culprit at the moment. Finding out what sets you off may be as simple as heading out, and if you have an allergy attack, check to see what pollens are high that day. You can also check with a local allergist to help narrow it down!
There are tons of ways you can fight those seasonal allergies, many of which are all natural! Web MD has some great tips to fight seasonal allergies without medication. Some ideas include:
-The shower can be your best friend! If you’ve had an allergy attack, rinsing all the pollen off in a bath or shower can bring you tons of relief!! Be sure to put on clean clothes when you are done, as pollen can be easily tracked in.
–Use a nasal rinse! Okay, we know that sounds kind of gross, but it really can do wonders for clearing up sinus pressure and congestion. There are several options available your favorite Greece pharmacy!
-Drink more fluids! Isn’t that the answer for everything!? Fluids will help clear congestion; for an added boost drink something warm like tea! The steam will pack an even more effective allergy punch!
When All Else Fails
Sometimes the best option when your allergies are really getting you down, is to stay in. We know that after a long winter, being outdoors feels GREAT! But taking a day inside (with windows closed!) may be just the ticket! If you’re going stir crazy, get out somewhere air conditioned. The good ‘ol AC helps keep air circulating, and allergens low.
