Allergies are horrible. When you want to be out enjoying the great summer weather, you’ve got itchy eyes, and you can’t stop sneezing. But having allergies doesn’t have to mean hiding away inside all summer. There are some ways that you can reduce the effect of allergies and survive the summer with relatively little pain. If you’re fed up of struggling with your allergies, here are a few simple things that might help you to relieve them a little bit.

Is It Actually Allergies?
Quite a lot of people think that they have allergies when in fact they just have a cold or a virus instead. The change of temperature between the seasons makes people a lot more susceptible to illness. When people fall ill during this transition, they often mistake it for allergies. If the symptoms persist for longer than a few weeks, then it might be allergies. The other thing to look out for is a fever. If you have one, then it is likely that you have a cold or virus, rather than allergies.

Symptom Relief
The unfortunate truth is, there’s no complete cure for allergies, but you can at least treat the symptoms. Different things work for different people so the best thing for you to do is get a wide variety of treatments and try combinations of them all. Once you’ve found a suitable combination, you should be able to relieve the symptoms fairly well.

Protect The House From Allergens
When you go outside, you can’t avoid being exposed to allergens, but you can reduce them inside the house if you are clever about it. Products like Pure Choice Chem-Dry are great for cleaning the carpets and removing allergens. Once you have it cleaned, protect the house by changing straight away if you’ve been outside. That way you won’t be dragging allergens all around the house. As long as you keep the house clean, you should reduce the risk of flare-ups. Even though it’s hot outside, you should keep the windows closed and put an air conditioner on. Leaving the windows open will just make the house as bad as being outside.

Avoid Going Outside
Staying inside all of the time isn’t going to be that much fun so don’t avoid it completely, but pick your moments. Anything that can be done inside, like working out, should be. Pollen and Allergens are most prolific in the middle of the day when it’s hottest. So, if you want to go outside for any reason, try to do it in the morning or the evenings. For outdoor chores like gardening, you could try wearing a face mask, you might look a bit odd but it will make you feel a lot better.

Don’t Underestimate Allergies
Most people discount allergies as something that they just have to live with. You won’t be able to do much about getting rid of them, but you need to realize that the symptoms are quite serious. If you are feeling particularly bad, make sure you take it easy. Treat it like you would any other illness, if it gets too much then go to bed.
