Prepare for Spring Allergies

Spring is right around the corner! But that means spring allergy season is on its way as well. It’s better to prepare sooner rather than later for those pesky allergies! Here are some ways to get ready for the spring allergy season.

Start Medications Early

Your medicines will not be nearly as effective if you begin to use them after your symptoms start. You should start taking allergy medications before spring arrives so your immune system won’t go into overdrive to protect you!

Check Pollen Levels

Pollen levels can make your allergy symptoms worse if they are higher than usual. Look into apps that can tell you the pollen levels for the day. If they are high, you’ll want to avoid yard work and playing outside for the day.

Adjust Your Schedule

As we mentioned earlier, you should use pollen levels to plan out your day, especially if you’ll need to be outside for an extended amount of time. Usually, hot or dry days and mornings are when pollen counts get higher.

Keep Your Windows Closed

The spring weather in Texas can make it so tempting to open the windows and feel the breeze! But you should avoid doing this if you or your family are prone to bad spring allergies. Once the pollen gets in your house, it will be challenging to get it out.
