What to Do if You're Allergic to Pollen - (http://gplus.ly/2i5uYoB)

Many people are allergic to pollen, but it can be hard to avoid. Here's what you can do to help your symptoms.

Exposure:
-Absolute avoidance of pollen exposure is impossible.
-Pollens are airborne and affect you whenever you are outside or when the doors or windows are open.

Avoidance:
-Keep windows closed at night. Use air-conditioning instead which cools, cleans and dries the air.
-Keep car windows closed when driving.
-Try to stay indoors when the pollen count or the humidity is reported to be high, and on windy days when pollen and molds may be blown about.
-Air your home in the evening after dewfall.
-Take a vacation during the height of pollen season to an area with a lower pollen count, like the beach.
-Do not use window fans which can draw outdoor pollens and molds into the home.
-Do not mow lawns or be around fresh cut grass.
-Do not rake leaves.
-Do not hang sheets or clothing out to dry.
-Do not over water indoor plants, if you are allergic to molds.

Are You Allergic to Your Pets? - (http://gplus.ly/2i5uYoB)

A common winter allergy is pet dander. With the cold weather, air isn't circulating as well and can build up in your house. Here's how to decrease your reaction to your pets.

Exposure:
-If house pets have been present or are currently present in the home, house dust will contain large amounts of animal dander.
-Furry animals outside of the home may cause problems. Examples include horses and laboratory animals such as mice, rats or guinea pigs.

Avoidance:
-Keep pets out of the bedroom.
-Keep pets outdoors.
-Place pets in another room.
-Whenever possible, carpeting, especially that is laid over concrete or in basements should be replaced by hardwood, vinyl or tile flooring, and washable throw rugs.
-Cover mattresses, box springs and pillow cases of allergy sufferers in impermeable encasings.
-Use a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) cleaner in the bedroom of the allergy sufferers to keep the air dander free.
-Open the windows and ventilate the house; air exchange can decrease airborne pet allergens.
