Tips for Surviving High Pollen Days

Monday, April 1, 2019

Atlanta Allergy & Asthma News
  • Keep your car and house windows closed; run the air conditioner (recycled setting) instead.
  • Change or clean your air filters regularly.
  • Shower before going to bed or when you get home. Pollen can settle into your hair and onto your clothes and skin, so a shower will keep you from breathing in pollen all night.
  • Wear sunglasses/glasses to keep pollen out of your eyes.
  • Remove shoes upon entering your home.
  • Wash off indoor pets’ paws and wipe down their fur with a damp cloth or towel if they’ve been outdoors. Pets can easily track pollen into your home, leaving it on your carpets and furniture.
  • Pollen counts tend to be highest during mid-day. Adjust outdoor activities accordingly.
  • If you have outdoor plans, take your allergy medication before going out. Don’t wait until you have symptoms.
  • Follow the pollen count at AtlantaAllergy.com and/or sign up to receive a daily email with the count and the pollen contributors. You may need to adjust your outdoor activities during peak pollen days.
  • See your board-certified allergist for a proper diagnosis of exactly what’s triggering your symptoms and a treatment plan specifically targeting those allergens.
