Breathe Easy And Avoid Allergies With These Tips Although everyone has a rough idea of what allergies are like, it can be hard for someone who does not have them to understand how dramatically they can affect a sufferer’s life. There are safe and effective ways to fight most allergy symptoms. For more ideas on living your life comfortably, read on. When you have exhausted all over-the-counter options, it may be time to make an appointment with your physician or an allergist. A doctor can prescribe a stronger medication to bring relief from your symptoms. Your doctor can also point out other remedies that you may not have thought of. Allergy shots are no match for homes that have a large amount of pet dander. Allergy shots are extremely helpful, as is removing the pet from thr home and cleaning the house from top to bottom. Of course, it is easier to say this then to do it! Carry the over-the-counter antihistamine diphenhydramine in case of an allergic reaction. This product can fight histamines and provide instant relief to some sufferers. Try not to use hair styling products in your hair. These products will create tar-pit-like trap, easily capturing allergens. Styling products act as pollen magnets. Bleach is well-known for killing mold and getting things very clean. However, bleach can adversely affect people with breathing problems and allergies. When you use bleach, it is wise to wear a breathing mask and rubber gloves to protect sensitive skin and airways. Open windows and doors, and turn on a fan to blow bleach fumes out at the same time that you are using it. If one allergy product does produce the desired effect, it’s not yet time to throw in the towel. There are many types of allergy medications, and they don’t all work alike. The key is to find the one that will help your specific situation. Over-the-counter products are available as eye drops or nasal sprays; prescription treatment options include leukotriene blockers and powerful steroid nasal sprays. Some people are allergic to the coloring in foods, drinks, bath & body products, or anything else you use on your skin. This includes paper products which may contain artificial dyes. You should change things around your house, like changing to products that are white paper. Although skin tests can be helpful for identifying potential allergens, they can not predict the severity of a person’s allergic reaction to an allergen. For instance, the skin test may reveal that you are sensitive to a spore that is common in your region. It is possible, however, that you may experience extremely mild symptoms in the presence of the allergen; you may not notice any discomfort at all. Keep rugs and carpets to a minimum when you are decorating your residence. These surfaces
are often filled with pollen, dust and pet dander. If you like having rugs in your home, make sure you wash them frequently to keep them allergen-free. Rather than having constant itchiness and sneezing, or watery eyes and coughing, learn what options are available to you to get relief. A couple of good options may include Claritin and nasal irrigation treatments. Keep these tips in mind and continue your research to keep your allergies at bay.
