Springtime is a time for new growth, warmer temperatures, and for Americans to once again enjoy outdoor activities. Unfortunately, this outdoor activity also comes with a price, as seasonal allergies worsen with the warm weather. Don’t let your allergies put a damper on your springtime fun, when you can take steps to alleviate allergens from affecting you.
The intense spring sunlight and warmer temperatures, allow trees and plants to grow. This is the time when many plants produce buds and flowers for reproduction. The pollen within these flowers is the main cause of most allergy symptoms in America. According to an article by the Mayo Clinic “Seasonal allergies: Nip them in the bud” millions of Americans suffer from springtime allergies, which are manageable with a few simple strategies.
Reducing exposure to common allergy triggers can prevent symptoms all together. This includes, limiting outdoor activities, removing clothing worn outside when entering your home, and if necessary wear a mask when outdoors. This is especially true on dry and windy days, as these conditions make it prime for pollen release. Pollen counts within the air fluctuate, and can make symptoms worsen within minutes.
During the height of the spring pollen season, it is often hard to escape the airborne allergens. The Mayo Clinic recommends keeping your indoor air clean to limit exposure.
