The ABCs of Keeping Allergens Out

In many areas of the United States, spring allergies (or “hay fever”) begin in February and last until the early summer. Hay fever is most often cause by pollen carried in the air. With spring just around the corner, we’ve put together The ABCs of Keeping Allergens Out:

A. Attract dust – don’t just move it around – by dusting with a damp cloth

B. Block allergens from coming in by regularly cleaning entryways

C. Close windows and use an air conditioner with a high-efficiency filter

It’s important to watch the pollen count before planning any outdoor activities and remember that pollen and mold levels are typically higher in the mornings. Allergies can also be triggered by common indoor allergens such as dried skin flakes, urine and saliva found on pet dander, mold, and dust mites. In addition to these triggers, symptoms may also occur from irritants such as smoke and strong odors, or to changes in the temperature and humidity of the air.

If you are one of the many people affected by hay fever, ask your pharmacist which antihistamines you should keep on hand. Antihistamines target histamine, which is what causes water eyes, runny noses, and nasal congestion during an allergic reaction. Shop your local pharmacy for allergy relief this season!
