In part one of our blog series, we talked about a few things that you can do to help make this spring easier on your allergies. From doing some deep spring cleaning in your home, to avoiding open windows and doors and taking special care when doing laundry, there are an array of things that you can do to help make allergy season far more manageable. Concluding our blog series with part two, here are a few more tips for to help make allergy season easier.

Visit An Allergist

While they can affect some people more adversely than others, allergies are something that many people struggle with on a daily basis. While some people simply struggle through allergy season with tissues galore, many people don’t take the time to visit an allergist to better understand their allergies. Visiting an allergist will help give you a better idea about the things that make your allergy symptoms flare up, and it may even open your eyes to allergies you never knew you had. Visiting an allergist will help you better understand your health, as well as what sorts of scenarios you should avoid. Additionally, they can help point you in the direction of various types of relief, which we will cover in our next point

Take Your Allergy Medication

While this one may be a bit obvious, many people either aren’t prescribed allergy medication, or simply forget to take it. While this isn’t necessarily something that you need to be taking at all times, it’s prescribed to you for a reason, and is there for you when you notice your allergy symptoms flaring up. During the spring, when allergen and pollen levels are at their highest, this is the best time for you to be taking your medication. Taking it will help provide you with the relief that you need, allowing you to truly enjoy all of the things that spring in Virginia has to offer without all the struggle and discomfort.

Be Smart About When You Go Outdoors

We’ve talked about the importance of being active, and the benefits of regular exercise should not not go ignored. During spring, however, there are certain times of the day that can be specifically bad for pollen and outdoor allergens. Avoid spending time outdoors during the early mornings, specifically between the hours of 5 and 10 AM. It’s at these times that pollen levels are at their highest, so try to avoid spending time outdoors during these hours and you may be able to limit the amount of allergy-related irritation that you experience.

Still, being outdoors is one of the best parts of spring, especially from having to spend a majority of our time indoors all winter. One of the most ideal times to be outside, studies show, is after a rainstorm. After it has rained, the atmosphere has almost been “reset” in a way, essentially cleansing the air of pollen and other irritants. If you don’t mind puddles and a little dampness , taking a walk outside after the rain has cleared is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise without suffering at the hand of allergies.
