Below are some tips for coping with spring allergies.
- Continue using your humidifier. It really helps with itchy and irritated sinus and throat problems.
- Use saline nasal spray. Clears the nose and helps with an itchy throat too.
- Invest in a nebulizer to help open those air passages and use early. For one of my son's who has bad seasonal allergies, we start a month or two beforehand.
- Take allergy medicine. We take Zyrtec every so often. I try my best not to give my kids medicine. But sometimes you need it.
- Keeps windows closed so all the pollen doesn't trickle into your house. I know its spring, but during high pollination time, it is worth keeping the windows closed to keep the pollen outside.
- Hose down your porch to wash away all the pollen.
- Wait to mow your lawn and weed. Or even better, delegate it, until the pollen count is lower.
- Don't hang laundry or dry clothes outside.
- If your kids or you played outside, change your clothes as soon as you get home.
