- Begin allergy medication prior to the start of the season.
- Know what your allergies are, so you know when your season begins, and you can treat them properly.
- Watch pollen counts so you know when your allergies are more active.
- Avoid allergens as much as possible. If you are allergic to grass, do not mow the grass. If you are allergic to mold, do not rake the leaves.
- Avoid early morning exercise outdoors during your season since pollen counts are higher from 5am to 10am.
- Shower and wash your hair before bed time to minimize nighttime symptoms.
- Stay indoors on hot, dry, windy days since this tends to elevate pollen counts.
- Keep the windows closed and use the A.C.
- Allergy shots can get rid of your allergies.
- If your symptoms are severe or not controlled with medications consider a trip to the beach during peak season.
