Tips for Surviving High Pollen Days

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

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.
