It might be early spring, but allergy levels are already high in Haines City, Florida. Some of the most prevalent allergens include oak, maple and grasses. If you suffer from allergies, read on to learn how to ease severe allergy symptoms.
Keep Windows and Doors Closed
In Florida, the temperatures at this of the year are nearly hot enough to warrant turning on the air conditioner. But if you’re still opening your windows and doors to let fresh air breeze through your home, it’s time to close them. Set your air conditioning system to re-circulate in your home, which will avoid drawing in pollen-rich air from outside.
Perform Outdoor Activities Later in the Day
While springtime mornings in Florida are relatively cool, they’re the worst times to run, garden or do anything else outside. To ease allergy symptoms, avoid spending too much time outside on mornings that are warm, dry and windy. The best time for outdoor activities is later in the evening or immediately after a heavy rainfall.
Wash Your Face and Hands Regularly
Washing your face and hands should be habitual, no matter the time of year. But that’s especially true for people who suffer from allergies. After being outside, wash your face and hands to remove pollen. Remember to also change and wash clothes immediately if you’ve been exposed to pollen. Wash your bedding in hot water once a week.
