All four year seasons are amazing, and they offer quite different experiences that are enjoyable. We have snow in winter, that cool sweater-weather in fall, those amazing warm days in summer and last but not least, we have spring. Why aren’t we mentioning what spring has to offer? Well, it offers something that not many people are happy about.
As beautiful as spring might be with all the flowers and trees blooming, pollen is also present wherever we go. And some people are allergic to it. By exposing yourself to pollen, you get all kinds of symptoms. They can vary from person to person, and some are not as allergic as others. But those that are extremely sensitive to it can start experiencing intense symptoms such as non-stop coughing, sneezing, teary eyes and even a severe nosebleed. That doesn’t sound good at all, especially not if you’re the one experiencing it. So, we decided to put together a quick guide that will potentially help you keep your allergies under control. Without any further ado, let’s start.
Tips for keeping your allergy under control
Tons of people immediately get associated with allergies when spring is mentioned. Here are some tips to keep them under control if you’re someone that’s really suffering from the symptoms.
Obviously, if you are really allergic to it, you should not have it inside your home. Make sure to keep your windows and doors closed, especially when a lot of wind is blowing which can potentially bring all of that unwanted pollen inside your home. Another common tip is to not do your laundry outside and leave it hanging there during these periods. If the pollen gets on your clothes, you will experience the symptoms even more severely. Consider vacuuming and dusting very often during the spring, this will keep the floors clean and as allergen-free as possible.

- Consider talking to your doctor and taking some medicine. We understand that not everyone loves medicine, but sometimes it really helps us overcome these tough periods. If you notice that the allergy is impacting your life negatively and preventing you to work at your maximum potential for example, you really need something to calm it down. Most of the allergy medicines are very lightweight and you just need to take a pill once in a few days, and it will drastically help. Also, you need to regularly consult with your doctor because you might think that you are allergic to something, but until it is medically confirmed, you cannot be exactly sure.
- We all love working out in the outdoors during the spring. It’s the best weather for it since it’s not too hot or too cold outside. However, running into all those trees that will potentially spread out the pollen everywhere is not really a smart idea. So make sure that you choose the right time to go outside. Experts say that the pollen count is much higher early in the morning and late in the night. So if you plan to work out outside, make sure to do it in the middle of the day when the pollen count is a bit lower.
