- Use air conditioning. Air-conditioning cleans, cools, and dries the air. A de-humidifier in the bedroom can also help. - Shower at night. Washing your hair can remove pollen that would otherwise be inhaled while you sleep. - Make someone else cut the grass.
You now have an excuse. Mowing the lawn can release pollens and mold into the air, and precipitate allergy attacks. - Vacation at the beach, which is relatively pollen free and lets you enjoy being outside - If necessary, take medication prescribed by your doctor, but don't overdose in an attempt to avoid symptoms.
If you still have problems, another prescription may work better. - Check the local pollen levels online. Days when the pollen counts are low are the perfect opportunity to take an all-day hike or overnight camping trip.
