How to Survive a Brutal Spring 2016 Allergy Season
Date:3/30/2016

“It’s going to be the worst ever.” Allergy sufferers hear that comment every year. However, according to The Weather Channel, conditions actually are ripe for a brutal allergy season in 2016. The mild winter across most of the country due to a strong El Niño could set the stage for a long and brutal allergy season in 2016 due to higher pollen counts. High pollen counts mean more allergy symptoms for the millions of Americans that suffer each year.

Fight back early!
It’s easier to prevent a fire than put one out, and that should be the thinking when preparing for spring. Seasonal allergy symptoms are the body’s overactive immune response to pollen in the air. Once this response is activated, it’s hard to turn off, according to WebMD. Allergy pretreatment is one great step toward feeling comfortable this spring.

Top Tips for Seasonal Allergy Preparation from Aprilaire

Start now: Depending on where you live, the time to start pretreatment with medicine will vary. For folks in the Northeast and Midwest, March or early April is a good time to begin. In the southern U.S., sufferers may want to start taking antihistamines even earlier. Thirty days prior to the usual onset of one’s allergy symptoms is a good benchmark.

Know the enemy: Even if a person doesn’t wish to pursue allergy shots or prescription medications, knowing what causes his or her allergy symptoms is essential to winning the battle. A trip to an allergist can quickly identify which types of pollen a person is most sensitive too. Armed with that knowledge, it’s time to watch the allergy forecast.

Avoid allergy triggers: Allergy sufferers have a large selection of news outlets, websites and apps that report pollen levels – and even what plant species are currently the most active. Checking these daily reports can help one decide if it would better to postpone the day trip to the lake or the stroll in the park until certain pollen counts fall.

Improve your indoor air: Even when a person’s allergy symptoms are a response to pollen from outdoors, bringing those irritants inside is easy. Pollen sticks to hair, clothes and pets and can infiltrate indoor air. When this happens, even the home offers no respite from allergy symptoms. A whole-home air purifier can trap and remove the majority of airborne pollen before a person breathes it in.

Taking control of symptoms before they begin prevents pollen from controlling the lives of those with allergies. Pretreatment, avoidance of triggers and cleaner air are good ways to start this season off on a comfortable note.
