Spring is around the corner and so are the allergies. During this season, people are vulnerable to tree pollen, weed and grass allegories. Dust mites, pets, and molds are also common problems in warmer months. Better the enemy you know than the enemy you don’t know! Here is the list of allergies that you might (not) know.
Your age doesn’t matter and it can be genetic. Your city could be the problem and allergens don’t appear at the same time.
Outdoor molds, mildew, and even your pet can cause allergies. If you have a pet that goes outside, wipe its fur off before he comes back in as they can bring pollen on their fur.
Is it a cold? If your cold symptoms go on for months, it could be an allergy. If you’re having a hard time distinguishing between the two, remember that allergies don’t cause fevers or greenish nasal discharge.
Trivializing serious conditions: people tend to trivialize hay fever and asthma as just an allergy and not a big deal. These conditions can get serious over time if they are ignored. Consult your doctor if you are experiencing asthma or hay fever.
Avoid those triggers: if you’re allergic to grass or pollen, keep windows shut and turn on the air conditioning. Avoid freshly cut grass. Take off shoes before you come inside, so you don’t track in pollen. Dry your clothes in a dryer and do not hang them outside.
It could be your bed! Dust mites, a common allergen, can settle in your bedding or mattresses and become a problem in warmer weather.
Get checked out. If your allergies don’t seem to go away on their own or if you are tired of using different products, visit your doctor to find out exactly what you’re allergic to.
