Back in April of this year, we interviewed local allergist Dr. David Redding. Recently he was featured in a couple videos on the Weather Channel. In these, he goes over some in-home tips on how to reduce allergens. From using pillow covers and a high quality HVAC filter to vacuuming your mattress, Dr. Redding highlights areas throughout the home, hidden allergens that can reside in these places and how to reduce or eliminate them.

Fall is in full swing – and with it autumn allergies. The prelude to winter allergy woes, fall allergies are one of the worst seasons for those who suffer from allergic conditions. Ragweed pollen and mold can be especially prolific at this time of year, setting off the sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, and general allergy malaise we know all too well.

In addition to the fundamental repertoire of allergy avoidance products such as air purifiers, allergy bedding, and a HEPA vacuum cleaner, specific allergies or allergy seasons call for particular allergy relief products.

Following are two allergy relief products that every allergy sufferer should have on hand in order to minimize fall allergy symptoms:

Window filters: Opening windows is excellent for letting fresh air circulate throughout homes that have been shut up against summer heat. But don't let in pollen along with that cool fall air! Window filters allow for circulation without the introduction of allergens into the home.

Masks: When taking care of fall yard work, masks are an absolute must for allergy sufferers. The combination of fallen rotting leaves and the dampness caused by rain creates mold and mildew that can trigger an onslaught of allergy symptoms. Wear a mask while raking and doing other outdoor chores to prevent mold exposure and the problems it causes.
