Limit Your Exposure

If spring and summer spell sneezing season for you, consider these steps to reduce your exposure to pollen:

•   Keep an eye on the pollen count, which is often included in weather reports. Stay inside as much as possible when it’s high.

•   Pollen counts are highest in the early morning and on dry, windy days.

•   Wear wrap-around sunglasses to keep pollen out of your eyes.

•   Keep car windows closed. Turn on the air conditioning to prevent pollen from entering the car.

•   Don’t lie on freshly cut grass.

•   If you have to work outside when the pollen count is high, wear a dust mask.

•   Change into clean clothes when you get home. Wash the clothes you wore outside.

•   Keep your windows closed at night. If possible, use air conditioning, which cleans, cools and dries the air.
