How do I avoid allergies?
Obviously, you aren't expected to live your life in a bubble, but there are things that can be done to minimize your exposure to specific allergens.
For example, if you are allergic to dust, you can dust-proof your bedroom by using allergy-proof mattress and pillow covers. If you are allergic to pollen and/or grass, it is beneficial to keep your windows closed and to shower immediately following outdoor activities.
There are many ways to cut down on the allergens in your environment. Talk to your allergist about any information that they can provide on allergy avoidance. Visit our avoidance page for tips on allergy avoidance in the home.
