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 ID-100322579Americans 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.

Experts are predicting an early allergy season this year, so get started with early prevention to reduce allergy symptoms this year.
