As the vibrant colors of spring emerge, so do seasonal allergies. They cast a shadow over the beauty and cause a lot of issues. 

Understanding and managing seasonal allergies can help you enjoy springtime to its fullest. Let’s explore seasonal allergies and how you can avoid them using precise treatments.

What Are Seasonal Allergies and How Can You Avoid Them?

Seasonal allergies, also known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis, occur when your immune system overreacts to outdoor allergens. These allergens include pollen, mold spores, and grass. 

To minimize exposure to these allergens, consider the following tips:

  • Monitor pollen counts in your area and stay indoors when levels are high.
  • Keep windows closed during peak pollen seasons and use air conditioning with a clean filter.
  • Remove pollen by showering and changing clothes after spending time outdoors.
  • Use a HEPA filter vacuum to reduce indoor allergens like dust mites and pet dander.
  • Wear a pollen mask during outdoor activities to reduce your exposure to allergens.

Symptoms and Treatment

Seasonal allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe and may include sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itchy or watery eyes, coughing, and fatigue. 

Over-the-counter antihistamines, decongestants, and nasal corticosteroids can help alleviate symptoms. For more severe allergies, though, your physician may recommend allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) or prescription medications. 

Additionally, lifestyle changes such as avoiding triggers, using nasal saline rinses, and keeping indoor spaces clean can provide further relief.
