While you may be enjoying the beautiful spring view, millions of Americans are in misery, with watery itchy eyes, runny noses and sneezing.

Yep, it’s spring allergy season.

Dr. Stanley Fineman, Allergist, Atlanta allergy & Asthma Clinic says, “The most common allergen in the spring-first we see tree pollen, and then following the tree pollen we see grass pollen so that’s usually the way the progression is.”

Although it is near impossible to avoid all pollen, there are some things you can do to limit your exposure. 

Keep the doors and windows in your home and car shut to keep the pollen out.

Take a shower and wash your hair after outdoor activities so you don’t bring the pollen inside with you. 

Wipe off pets when they come indoors and don’t let them sleep in your bed with you and transfer any pollen.

If you know you suffer from spring allergies, start taking medications before your symptoms begin.

Dr. Stanley Fineman also says, “If the tissues swell, they can block the sinus passages and those need to stay open so the mucus can drain.”
