From the Health Office

Allergy season is upon us. Here are some helpful suggestions of things that can


be done at home.


  1. Check Pollen Counts. Before heading outside, check the local news or visit the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology’s National Allergy Bureau for up-to-date readings.
  2. Shut the Windows. Good advice for at home and in the car to help keep pollen out. Cool with the air conditioner instead.
  3. Move outdoor activities to the afternoon. Pollen counts are usually highest from 5 to 10 AM. If you plan to garden, mow the lawn or take on other allergen-stirring chores, wear a mask.
  4. Head out on rainy days. Moisture helps clear pollen from the air. Dry, windy days are more likely to have a lot of pollen.
  5. Shower. After being outside, it’s a good idea to toss your clothes in the hamper and rinse pollen from your skin and hair. Get undressed in the bathroom not in your bedroom. Change your pillow case daily to prevent sleeping with pollen.
  6. Dry laundry indoors. As nice as the fresh-air smell may be, pollen can cling to your clothes, sheets and towels.
  7. Try a Neti pot. Rinsing your sinuses is a quick, natural and effective way to flush out mucus and allergens so you can breathe easier. You can also use a saline spray.
  8. Run over-the-counter drugs by the doctor. Some over-the-counter medications work best if taken before the pollen hits the air. (Think April 1st or April Fool’s Day). Some allergists recommend treatment about two weeks before symptoms typically appear.
  9. Wear a hat when outdoors to keep pollen off of your hair.
  10. Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly at the base of the nose to catch pollen while outdoors.
  11. Wear sunglasses to provide a partial block of the eyes from pollen.
