Health Tip: Stay Inside When Spring Allergens Are at a Peak

Health Tip: Stay Inside When Spring Allergens Are at a Peak

04/27/11

(HealthDay News) -- Seasonal allergies can cause itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion and sneezing.

The University of Maryland Medical Center suggests these lifestyle changes to ease seasonal allergy symptoms from outdoor allergens:

  • Start your allergy medications a week or two before the season starts.
  • Don't take a camping trip or go on a hike when pollen counts are high.
  • Stay away from barns and hay, and try not to mow the grass or rake leaves.
  • Wear sunglasses to keep pollen out of the eyes.
  • After spending time outside, take a shower and wash hair, change clothes and rinse out the nasal passages with a salt water rinse.
  • Close windows and doors during allergy season.
