Springtime allergies

Springtime allergies

  • Pollen and mold are the top season allergy triggers, peaking in spring and summer.
  • Days that are hot, windy or dry are usually the worst. Plan activities for cooler, less windy days.
  • After you come in from outside, wash your clothes and shower right away to avoid excess allergens.
  • Plan activities for later in the day, as pollen count is highest in the morning.
  • While indoors, cut back on carpeting and drapes, which attract allergens.
  • Speak with a medical professional if allergens are affecting your everyday life.
