Before you make plans to spend a day outdoors, visit the AAAAI National Allergy Bureau's website and enter your zip code to find up-to-date information on daily mold and pollen counts. This is also a very useful resource for choosing a destination for your next vacation. It's difficult to enjoy yourself when you're battling allergies.

 

Whenever possible, choose tile, linoleum, or hardwood floors over carpeting. Even with regular vacuuming, carpet traps dust, pollen, pet dander, and many other common allergens. Solid floor types are easier to keep clean and allergen-free. If you prefer the soft feeling of carpet, rugs can be used. Area rugs trap less irritants, are easier to keep clean, and less expensive to replace.

 

If you suffer from allergies, choose a vacuum cleaner with disposable bags. While these vacuums are less ideal environmentally, they tend to be better for allergy sufferers because they trap dust, dander, pollen and more inside, rather than exposing you to the irritants when you empty a canister into the trash.

 

Wash your bed sheets at least once a week. This will help eliminate any allergy triggers that you may come across, like pollen. You should be sure to use hot water when washing your sheets, so you can destroy any pollen that has collected. This will help you breathe easier at night.

 

Because everyone is different, there are myriad allergy relief products available from doctors and pharmacists. See if your physician can give you a sample size product or buy a package that contains the smallest quantity. If that product doesn't help your allergic symptoms, then you could move on and try a different one without wasting a lot of money.

 

Determine why you itch. Sometimes it can be difficult to know whether the itchy, raised welts on your skin are hives or just insect bites. If the bumps appear all over your body, they are probably hives. Insect bites, on the other hand, appear in clusters and on the arms on legs. Topical products are ideal for either ailment; oral anti-histamine is recommended to treat allergies, but is not necessary for insect bites.

 

Clean your home thoroughly and regularly. Vacuum at least two times a week and dust just as often. Be sure to wear a mask and gloves to avoid getting any irritation from dust or from the cleaning chemicals that you use. Use specific cleaning tools for allergy sufferers, like a vacuum with a HEPA filter.

 

As you have read, you know that allergies can actually be dealt with if you know what to do. This is why they're easily dealt with if you just know what you're doing. You probably won't be able to stop most allergies from happening in the first place, but you can control how much you suffer from symptoms. Take this information and use it for immediate allergy relief.
