The Mayo Clinic offers the following tips to reduce seasonal allergies:

  • Stay indoors on dry, windy days. The best time to go outside is after it rains, which helps clear pollen from the air.

     

  • Don't hang laundry outside. Pollen can stick to sheets, towels and clothing.

     

  • Delegate lawn mowing and other gardening chores that can stir up allergens.

     

  • Pay attention to pollen forecasts and current pollen levels and try to reduce outdoor time when the levels are high.

     

  • Keep indoor air clean by using the air conditioning in your house and car. Also, keep indoor air dry with a dehumidifier.
