You can manage and even prevent hay fever

You’d love to stop and smell the roses, but your nose knows better. Pollen, mold, pets, dust mites and other allergens can trigger allergic reactions in those who are sensitive to them. Try these suggestions to help your symptoms:

  • Keep windows and doors closed and air conditioning on during allergy season
  • Install a good air filter at home
  • Avoid mowing the lawn or raking leaves as much as possible
  • Repair any moisture problems in your home
  • Use dust-proof covers on your mattress and pillows
  • Keep your pet out of the bedroom and out of the house as much as possible
