Tips for Surviving Spring Allergies

With the spring weather approaching, it can be a huge worry for people who suffer from severe allergies. However, with the help from the asthma and allergy specialists in Hunterdon County, NJ, and Somerset County areas, you can help keep your allergies under control.

Schedule an Appointment ASAP

The best way to prepare for your seasonal allergies is to schedule an appointment with one of our asthma and allergy specialists in Somerset County, NJ, and surrounding towns. It might be beneficial to start your allergy medications before the pollen and mold begins to affect you.

Prep Your Home

While it is nice to have your windows and doors open when the weather gets warmer, the small particles of pollen and mold can easily get through the holes of your screens.  A great tip is to run your air conditioning system earlier in the year to prevent stuffiness.  You should also change your air filters in your AC unit in your home and in your car. For extra filtration, consider using an air conditioning unit that uses a HEPA filter or a high-efficiency particulate air filter.

You will also want to make sure you keep your home dry, wash and air out your bedding, curtains, etc. and dust the surfaces of your home regularly.

Exercise Indoors

If you exercise, you will want to monitor the levels of pollen throughout the day. The best choice is to exercise indoors but if you really want to go outside, pick a time in the afternoon when the pollen count is the lowest.
