Since exercise increases the amount of air your lungs take in, if you have pesky allergies, keep your workouts indoors. All of the pollen and other particulates that trigger your allergic reactions will get into your system much quicker and in a greater amount when doing any strenuous activity outdoors.

 

Understand the fundamental differences between irritants and allergens. Exposure to an allergen provokes a physical reaction in your body in response to an unnatural protein. Irritants include things like paper dust, chemical fumes, perfume and cigarette smoke. These substances are irksome, but they do not carry an actual health risk, most of the time.

 

Watch your local weather forecast to see if pollen is high for that day. If it is, it's best that you minimize your time spent outdoors. If you do want to go outdoors, make sure it's not between the hours of 5 and 10 A.M. This is the time when pollen is high.

 

With so many allergens in the air, it can be hard to pinpoint the most likely culprit for your allergic symptoms. Most people just assume that pollen is to blame. Actually, it could be anything from lawn fertilizer, to local wildlife, and native plants. In these cases, it is easy to become discouraged when one experiences an allergic reaction even during days with a low pollen count. An allergy test can help you to get to the bottom of your symptoms.

 

Most coughs are caused by some form of allergic reaction, yet many people automatically attempt to treat the problem with cough suppressants. However, an allergic cough is your respiratory system's way of breaking up, and clearing away mucus. Stifling that cough makes it difficult for your body to productively fight allergic symptoms.

 

Protect your hair. If you have mid-length to long hair, you probably already know that spending time outdoors means coming back with pollen in your hair. Mold, spores and other allergens become trapped in your hair and may then come into contact with your pillow at night. If possible, tuck all of your hair into a hat whenever you go outside for longer than 10 or 15 minutes.

 

Olive trees are quite popular as a landscape tree. Unfortunately, the trees also produce a lot of pollen. Being able to identify this kind of tree could help you protect yourself from allergies. Using a water hose to spray down a tree can help to reduce pollen.

 

Sometimes having allergies means avoiding the triggers, but there are also many solutions available that won't mean you have to change your lifestyle, avoid animals completely or stay away from the park. By following the tips found in this article, you can learn about and identify your options for managing and living with your allergy symptoms. Avoid spending another day suffering from allergies. Take charge of your symptoms.
