According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), one in five Americans suffers from allergies. Allergy is actually the fifth leading chronic disease nationwide.
The most common type of allergy is allergic rhinitis, which is an allergy to airborne particles, such as dust, dander, and plant pollen.
As warmer weather settles in, allergy sufferers are wondering how they can best avoid all the coughing and sneezing and general misery. The simple tips below can help you better control your environment by allergy-proofing your home. And less allergens at home can help you better control all that sneezing.
Going to an allergist and getting skin tests will determine what specific allergens you’re more susceptible to and the best treatment options. Also remember that if you have questions about your allergies, or your symptoms seem to be getting worse, don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor.
Remove your shoes at the door.
As soon as you’re through the door, kick those shoes off. This small change will prevent you from tracking in dirt and other irritants—like, pesticides, mold, pollen, oil residues from the roads, and E. coli bacteria from pet droppings.
Close your windows.
