Controlling Allergens: In the Home

Image

Avoid yard work and pulling weeds. These and other outdoor activities increase your exposure to pollen. If that’s not possible, wear a filter mask. When you’re done, bathe, wash your hair, and change your clothes.

Even a clean home can be full of allergens, so take a moment to see what you can do to cut down on allergens in each room of your home. Try to avoid things like cigarette smoke and perfume. They can irritate your eyes, nose, thorat, and lungs and make your allergies worse.
