A runny nose, constant sneezing, dry eyes — these are just a few symptoms of an allergic reaction — and if they sound familiar, you may want to learn more about how to prevent allergies.  Did you know that more than 50% of Americans suffer with allergic reactions on a daily basis? Although the statistics are quite high, the truth is that when you do a few simple things you can outsmart allergens with ease!

  • Shut those windows and doors! If you want some fresh air, go for a stroll outside rather than letting air enter the home, because pollen, dust, dog hair and other pesky allergens will enter the smallest cracks and settle inside the home.
  • Limit exposure on mornings that are especially warm and dry; these will usually be the high pollen count days. Days that are dry and windy also have high pollen counts. The best time for outdoor activities is immediately following a heavy rainfall.
  • Wash your face and hands after you’ve been outside to remove pollen. Also, change and wash clothes if they’ve been exposed to pollen.
