HAY FEVER & ALLERGY CURES SHOPPING LIST – amzn.to/2r3NjHL
1) Take a daily, non-sedating anti-histamine tablet. A range are available from chemists – find the one that works best for you (which may not be the same as the one that works for your best friend!)
2) Use a steroid nasal spray. These work by preventing inflammation in the nasal passages, but they take several days to take effect – so be patient. They also need to be used regularly, every day, during the hayfever season – and that includes cool rainy days when the pollen count is low.
3) Anti-inflammatory eye drops can help reduce streaming, itchy eyes. They normally need to be used at least twice a day. All these medications are available directly from chemists, but larger quantities are much cheaper on prescription from your GP.
4) Track the pollen count! Watch the weather in the mornings and evenings for the following day to see if its low, medium or HIGH and plan accordingly.
5) The pollen count is at its highest early in the morning and in the evening – so at these times try to stay indoors and keep windows closed.
6) Pollen can stick to your clothing and your hair. Give your outdoors clothes a good shake before you come indoors, and wash your hair regularly.
7) Rubbing petroleum jelly at the entrance to your nostrils can help to trap pollen. If you find it greasy, or don't like the smell, alternatives based on beeswax are available.
8) Sunglasses can help to protect eyes from pollen as well as harmful U-V rays. Wrap around styles are best for hay-fever sufferers.
9) On hot, dry days, keep windows closed and check your car's air conditioning is fitted with a pollen filter.
10) Steroid tablets taken by mouth can help reduce hayfever symptoms, but side effects mean they are only suitable for those with severe symptoms. However, they can be very useful to get you through a short period of important exams.
11) Pinpoint Your Allergy. The first step in controlling hay fever is to find out what you are allergic to. Maybe you know, from years of hay fever symptoms, that it's tree or grass pollen in the spring, or ragweed in the fall. If you aren't sure, see your physician to help diagnose your allergy.
12) Learn when to hide! Stay Indoors On Bad Pollen/Mold Days. When pollen counts are high, people with severe hay fever symptoms should stay indoors—especially between 5 and 10 in the morning, when pollens are most prevalent. If possible, use an air conditioner, and keep the filters clean to avoid blowing allergens around.
13) PETS! Avoid contact with pets that have been outdoors—they can carry pollen inside. Keep pets out of the bedroom and off of furniture, since they may carry pollen if they have been outdoors.
14) If You Do Go Outdoors, Shower After. If you have hay fever triggered by outdoor allergens, it's important to shower and wash your hair after spending time outside when the pollen count is high—especially before going to bed. Showering helps remove pollen from your skin and hair and can help prevent a night-time allergy attack.
15) Avoid Smoke and Other Irritants. Smoking—as well as second-hand smoke and smoky environments—insect sprays, fresh paint, and other household chemicals can worsen symptoms of hay fever for many people. If you have allergies, it may be helpful to avoid exposure to these pollutants.
16) Keep In Mind that Most Air Purifiers Aren't Helpful. Studies show that air-purifying units have little effect on allergens. Small air cleaners cannot remove dust and pollen, and some types—called electrostatic precipitators—can pollute indoor air with ozone, aggravating allergy symptoms. The best type is the HEPA (high-efficiency particulate arresting) filter.
17) Ask your GP about immunotherapy. This reduces the reaction of the immune system to pollen, but several months of treatment are required, which should be started in the autumn or early winter.
