Allergy Avoidance: Tips to Avoid Pollen Exposure
Posted by Jamie on Thursday, April 09, 2009
In the past few weeks, a light dusting of yellow pollen has started to blanket areas all over the South. Pollen grains are flying all over and causing people to experience allergy symptoms. One focus of our company is to try and educate people on how they can avoid allergens.

In an article released yesterday on the Medical News Today web site, Dr. Ewen Tseng, an otolaryngologist on the medical staff at Baylor Medical Center at Frisco, offers some very relevant tips to avoid pollen exposure:

  • Wear protective clothing, including gloves, to reduce exposure to allergens and avoid transferring pollen from your hands to your eyes and nose.
  • Wear a protective mask. You should think of your nose as a filter. Against pollen, the nose is your first line of defense.
  • Wash your hands, change clothes, and shower after working outside.
  • One alternative to wearing a mask is nasal irrigation with a saline solution to rinse allergens from your nose.
These strategies to avoid allergens take very little time, effort, or money; but they can be a very important part of your daily routine. Try them and you might find that you can feel and breathe better.
