Avoiding Spring Allergy Symptoms Reviewed by MD247
If you are sensitive to outdoor allergens, you will have symptoms that often start in the spring and kick back up at various times of the year. The pollens causing allergy symptoms include tree pollens, grass pollens, weed pollens, ragweed pollen and tumbleweed pollen. Keep in mind that each of these allergen producers will grow from spring until fall in most areas, and some regions in the South and West will even have the misfortune of pollens in winter months. This article will give you some thoughts on how to start fighting spring allergy symptoms.
Here are some tips that can help you start to manage spring allergy symptoms:
- Avoid walking outdoors in wooded areas or in gardens as much as possible. Keeps the total amount of vegetation surrounding your home to a minimum, particularly if you suffer from severe spring allergy symptoms.
- Try to switch to an indoor workout routine during the heaviest spring pollen periods. Relegating yourself to the treadmill may appear boring, but breathing the filtered air will allow your spring allergy symptoms to remain minor.
- Avoid outdoor treks during days that mix very hot/dry weather with high winds. Spring pollen counts are high on these days, and particularly high between the hours of 5AM and 10AM. Limiting exposure on the worst days will make your spring allergy symptoms a little less severe.
- If you are suffering from a particularly bad bout of spring allergy symptoms, think about asking one of your family members to cut the grass.
