Seasonal Allergy Relief

Seasonal allergy relief  can be difficult to plan for because pollen levels are impacted by so many different things. Pollen levels are obviously primarily affected by location. But they're also affected by the time of day, the level of humidity in the air, and the temperature. In addition, we all have varying tolerance levels towards tree and grass allergens. Some are not affected at all, and others begin to display symptoms by the slightest bit of pollen that is blown through an open window.

If you are at all susceptible to allergens, one of the first things that you should do is to have an allergist give you an allergy test. This will identify not only which allergens impact you but will also help to show your tolerance levels for each. Having the results of the test in hand, you can now track the seasons, times of the day, and so forth when those allergens will be most prevalent and plan your schedule around them.

If you can't find a way to avoid the allergens, one of the most prevalent ways that doctors have of giving their patients seasonal allergy relief is to give them anti-histamines. There are some anti-histamines that you can buy over the counter. Others, stronger ones, require a doctor's prescription. Your doctor will determine what level of strength that you need. No matter the strength, however, nearly all of these will have some affect on your symptoms. The level of strength directly determines the level of relief you will get. Anti-histamines are also relatively fast acting. You'll notice positive effects as soon as an hours and they can last up to 6 hours or more.

Many allergy sufferers will observe that after a rain fall, they're able to breathe easier. Rain actively reduces the amount of allergens in the air - in effect it "washes" the pollen from the air. Less pollen in the air, means that allergy sufferers are affected less. This might seem to indicate that pollen sufferers will tend to have more allergy relief in the rainy seasons and in areas of the country that have more than average rainfall. It is usually a false conclusion, however, as more rainfall inevitably means more grass and tree growth which means more pollen. So although  the pollen calm after a rainfall does result in  a short term relief, you know that it's really the calm before the storm.

So, to summarize, some of the things that you can proactively do for yourself are:

  • Avoid exposing yourself to allergens during the times of the day when the pollen counts are at their highest.
  • When you come inside, wash your face - especially the areas around your eyelashes and nose. These are places where pollen loves to sneak into and hide. By washing it out you can relieve your symptoms.
  • Take any medications that your doctor advises to relieve the symptoms.
