Seasonal Allergies-Avoiding Pollen

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010


Some suggestions for avoiding pollen offered by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology include:

1)Keep your windows closed to prevent pollens from entering your home.
2) Minimize outside activities early in the morning when pollen is
usually emitted-between 5-10 a.m.
3) Keep your car windows closed when traveling.
4) Stay indoors as much as possible when the pollen count is high,
and on windy days when pollen may be more abundant in the air
5) Vacation in more pollen-free areas during the height of the
pollen season.
6) Avoid mowing the lawn and avoid freshly cut grass
7) Machine dry bedding and clothing instead of hanging outside
where pollen may attach to it.
