5 Tips for Spring Allergies in Dallas/Fort Worth

Did you know that there are approximately 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies?  The Dallas/Fort Worth metro is one of the worst places in the world for allergies. We often have beautiful weather, but the grasses, pollens, and molds that float around are challenging for some of us. If you are pregnant or unable to take allergy medication for some reason, life is rough at this time of year. In today's post, I'll share tips for minimizing allergy symptoms without medication.

1. Use a Neti Pot to irrigate your sinuses.

Visit a local drugstore and ask your pharmacist to explain the concept of sinus irrigation. The concept is simple. You fill the Neti Pot with a saline solution and then pour it through your sinuses.  I use this every evening during allergy season regardless of whether I am pregnant or not because it feels so good afterward.

2. Get a shower when you come home and change your clothing.

Minimize your exposure to allergens at home by getting a shower and changing your clothing so that you wash any pollen or allergens off of you.

3. Wash your clothing in fragrance-free laundry detergent with hot water.

Wash your clothing in hot water to minimize the allergens on your clothing.  Fragrance-free laundry soap is helpful to many people since fragrance may cause irritation, particularly during allergy season. We use a fragrance-free all brand laundry detergent.

4. Run your a/c in the car.
Running the a/c in your car will help to filter the air and make you more comfortable. Be sure to change the air filter in your car on a regular schedule.

5. Use an true HEPA air purifier, especially in your bedroom while you sleep. 

During allergy season, my bedroom is my sanctuary.  I am sometimes antsy to leave work because I want to go home to my bedroom and close the door and run my true HEPA air purifier.
