Summer Allergies: 6 Ways to Beat Allergens & Reduce Your Symptoms!

Summertime is fun – unless you have allergies that won’t let you breathe. Don’t let sniffles and sneezes keep you from enjoying your summer. Take advantage of these simple ways to reduce allergy symptoms!

  • Wash your hair at night to rinse out pollen.
  • De-stress yourself with quiet time. Stress can worsen allergies.
  • Use a saline sinus rinse to clear out allergens.
  • Take an antihistamine to reduce symptoms.
  • Keep your home cool and dry to avoid dust mites.
  • Wash bedding and towels weekly in hot water.

There may not be a cure for allergies, but allergic reactions can be easily mitigated. To seek treatment for serious allergy symptoms, visit your health care practitioner or go to NPFinder.com to find a nurse practitioner near you.
