Allergies & The Great Outdoors: What to Pack for Travels
Posted by Craig on Monday, May 07, 2007 offers the following tips to allergy sufferers on the road:

  • Make sure your destination is not populated with the specific type of plants to which you are allergic. If you are going to a place where there are a lot of allergy-inducing plants, talk to your pharmacist or doctor to see if you should take some preventative medication.

  • Keep in mind that dust mites and airborne pollens are more common in tropical climates.

  • If possible, try to avoid travelling during peak pollen season for the region that you will be visiting.

  • The air quality in airplanes can be a nuisance for allergy sufferers; put your allergy medication on your carry-on bags in case you need it during the flight. (You can also improve the air quality on airplanes by using a Plane Clean Air filter.)

  • If you are travelling by car and your car is slightly dusty, open the windows and put on the air conditioning for about 10 minutes before departing on a lengthy journey. (You can also filter the air in your car with an Amaircare Roomaid air purifier with an auto adapter kit.

  • Once you get to your destination, be aware that dust mites and irritants of all kinds can be hidden in bed sheets and in dusty upholstery. If you're worried about the dust mites in your room, bring your own sheets. (The portable Blueair AirPod air purifier also makes a great travel companion; it's perfect for dusty hotel rooms.
