Why are you living your life in suffering? Why do you continue to sniffle when you could be singing? Would you like to learn how to live life without suffering?
If you suffer from seasonal allergies, it is best that you do not have carpets in your home. And if you do insist on having carpets, get allergy care ones. Carpets hold dusts and other particles that will send your immune system out of control, even if you do clean them often.
Avoid line-drying your clothing, or linens if you suffer from asthma, especially during the spring. While the smell and feel of fresh, line-dried laundry can be a treat. It can also make you miserable when you bring in pollen from outdoors. Use the clothes dryer when pollen levels are at their peak.
If you rely heavily on nasal decongestants to treat the symptoms of allergic rhinitis, you may be at risk for experiencing a rebound effect. When this happens, you may experience additional swelling and irritation. If you become hooked on these drugs, you should make an effort avoid using them for a period of 72 hours at a time. During this time, switch to an antihistamine to reduce swelling caused by withdrawal.
Get an allergy test. Knowing exactly what you are allergic to, can be the single greatest advantage you can have in dealing with your problem. Not all pollen is the same. Some people are triggered by tree pollen, skin, food and others by grass or weeds. What you thought was an issue to pet dander, may actually be caused by undiagnosed dust mite or mold problems in your home. Only and simply test can provide you with definitive evidence of your triggers so you can create an appropriate plan to deal with them.
Just because you have pollen allergies, doesn’t mean you have to live life without the beauty of flowers. Instead, learn which varieties are best, and use them to fill your flower beds, and home. Avoid planting the most serious offenders: daisies, sunflowers, chrysanthemums and dahlias. Instead, opt for gladiolus, periwinkles, and begonias.
If you trouble with pet dander, designate at least one area in the house as a “pet-free”� zone. Your bedroom is the most obvious choice. Keeping this area clean, and free from intrusions by your furry friends can significantly alleviate your allergy symptoms. The alternative, of course, is to designate a single area in which your pet can stay.
A good way to reduce your exposure to allergens is to close your windows and doors in the morning and night. Many of the common allergens are at their peak during these times of the day. Most outdoor allergens are pollen. Natural sources like pollen are at their highest levels at these times of the day.
If you know what allergens trigger your symptoms, you can take appropriate actions to avoid or decrease exposure. Dust can cause allergic reactions, so be sure to dust often to remove this potential problem. You may not be willing to give up your pets if they trigger your allergies, but you can at least make sure they stay as well-groomed and clean as possible. In addition, frequent dusting and vacuuming can be instrumental in reducing animal dander.
