Although most of us can not wait for the coming of a real spring, there are people among us for whom spring and summer is not only a time of perfect weather and rest. Allergy patients, because of them, expect first of all catarrh, cough, tearing eyes and itchy skin. The pollen period for which I am allergic is from April to September. If at the time I want to have any skin on my nose and mouth, I have to follow a few rules. Antihistamines can work wonders, but even they will not work if we do not take care of our immediate surroundings. I invite you to an entry that will answer the question of how to survive the pollen season and … not suffocate
1. Close the windows tightly
The holy principle of allergy suffers “during the pollen season, do not air the apartment! It is not advisable to open the window during the day, but you should pay special attention to the early morning and evening. Our apartment should be a friendly refuge, and not another place where the only friend is a handkerchief ..
2. Air the apartment at night
Let’s be honest – you can not open windows at all. To reduce losses, you should ventilate the apartment at the time when the pollen concentration is the smallest, that is between midnight and four in the morning. The low temperature that prevailed at that time will also help you fight mites, as I wrote in the article about the ideal allergy-free home.
3. Take a shower after returning home
Being outside, we gather a lot of pollen on ourselves that will be happy to live in our home. If you are allergic, take a shower right after returning home. Only in this way will you wash away the allergens that make your life so difficult.
4. Change clothes every day
The allergy can not afford to wear the same clothes for two days in a row. Even if the dress is still reading, you must wash it, because it has already become a home for pollen. When you get back home, it’s best to take a shower and change into a home outfit.
5. Spend your holidays by the sea or in the high mountains
Forget about the holidays in a beautiful agrotourism farm, in the countryside fragrant with freshly cut grass. The best choice for an allergy are places where the concentration of pollen in the air is relatively low. Such places include lakes, the sea and high mountains.
6. Do not mow the grass
If you do not like your mower, then you have an excuse. Mowing the grass during its pollination, ie from May to September, is forbidden to you. However, if your lawn begins to look like a jungle, ask another person for help, and during this time you should evacuate from the “quarantined space”.
7. Get to know the dusting calendar
Knowing the dusting period is absolutely necessary for you.
8. For a walk only after the rain
If you like summer walks, you must also like summer rain, which is your greatest ally. The concentration of pollen in the air is the lowest a few minutes after a heavy downpour.
9. Buy saline solution and eye drops
The best way to get itchy and itchy eyes is saline, which solution you should wash your nose and eyes with every time you return home. If your eyes still do not give you peace, always have eye drops with you that moisturize the irritated conjunctiva.
10. Do not eat honey
Honey is made by bees, and bees feed on pollen. The conclusion from here is therefore obvious – eating honey is an oral pollen reception.
11. Find out what cross-allergy is
If you want to know how to survive the dusting period, you need to closely observe your body. Many allergy sufferers who are allergic to pollen, also react allergic to food – I am the best example. Did you know that allergy to grass often goes hand in hand with allergies to kiwi, melon, tomato and gluten? A full credible list of cross-allergies can be found at nexter.pl.
12. Make an appointment with an allergist
The last tip on how to survive the pollen season is the most important – do not treat yourself with the help of doctor Google, just make an appointment with an allergist. The time before pollination starts is the best for a visit to your specialist who will select the best medication for this period.
