Surviving Allergy Season

Spring is the season that brings increased pollen levels and the symptoms of sneezing, coughing, runny nose, itchy eyes, and other things that can make you feel miserable.  What can you do to help survive allergy season?
  • pollen levels are the highest in the morning and on windy days, so protect yourself at these times if possible
  • keeping windows closed, especially on windy days, and changing clothes after being outdoors helps
  • stay in the shade, wear sunglasses, keep eye drops handy
  • wash your hands often
  • Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine, so eating fruits and vegetables, or taking supplements may help minimize symptoms
