4 Tips to Help You Prepare for Spring Allergies

Tips to Help You Prepare for Spring Allergy Season

Spring is here, which means flowers, trees, and plants are all in bloom. For seasonal allergy sufferers, this is the time to start preparing for springtime sniffles by getting ahead of your allergies. Use these tips from our board-certified team at Center for Allergy and Asthma of Georgia to get started:

Start Allergy Treatments Now

To get ahead of your spring allergies, our board-certified specialists recommend starting treatments early to give your immune system time before the season kicks off.

For instance, allergy drops require about three weeks of buildup and then a daily dosage throughout the spring allergy season to be as effective as possible. This means the sooner you start treatment, the better.

Start Spring Cleaning

Do you wake up feeling congested during spring? Spring cleaning doesn’t just help declutter your home — it helps prevent indoor and outdoor allergens from spreading in your home and causing symptoms. Clean common living spaces and bedrooms regularly. This will cut down on how much pollen you’re tracking in from outside, as well as the dust and dander within your home.

Start Tracking Pollen Counts Near You

Check the pollen count in your area when you know you’ll be outside for an extended period of time. Typically, the pollen count is at its highest during the daytime — between 10 AM and 5 PM. So, limit your time spent outside between these hours.

Maintain Your HVAC

Turning on your cooling unit for the season tends to send many household allergens throughout your home’s air, including pollen, dust, pet dander, and other particles. Change out those filters and maintain your HVAC unit to improve your indoor air quality!
