Ah, springtime...Sunny days, warm breezes, blooming flowers, there's nothing quite like Spring, is there? Unfortunately, Spring being in the air typically means that pollen and other allergens are in the air as well. Short of living in a bubble, there's nothing you can do to 100% protect yourself from allergies, but there are a few things you can do to avoid the worst it. Check out Hall Honda's tips here.


Know your enemy

Specifically, what are you allergic to? The most common culprit is pollen, which can be spread on the wind by trees, flowers, and other plants. That being said, mold is another common allergen, so be aware of that as well.

Avoid allergens (when possible)

If you can avoid going outside on windy days, do so, especially when pollen counts are high. If you do have to go outside, try to do so in the morning or evening--pollen counts are usually highest during midday and the afternoon. And don't forget to change the air filter in your home and vehicle. Those should help shield you from allergens as well.

Seek medical help

If your symptoms become unbearable, you may find that over-the-counter medications ease your symptoms. That being said, it's always best to speak to a doctor before starting any health regimen, and your allergies might be severe enough that you could benefit from immunotherapy or allergy shots.
