3 Tips to Relieve Allergies

May 4, 2010

Do you suffer from constant sneezing and red, itchy eyes? Are eye drops and cold medicine not helping relieve these symptoms? You may have dust allergies or seasonal allergies, and not ever been diagnosed!

May is Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, helping to spread knowledge about these two ailments.  Many people suffer from allergies, but mistake their symptoms for a cold or flu. Seasonal and dust allergies affect more than 50 million Americans every year. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Allergy is the 5th leading chronic disease in the U.S. among all ages, and the 3rd most common chronic disease among children under 18 years old. Allergies are not curable, but there are ways to decrease symptoms.

Allergy Symptoms

  • Red, itchy or watery eyes
  • Eczema
  • Hay fever
  • Hives
  • Swollen sinuses and sinus pressure
  • Puffy eyes
  • Wheezing or trouble breathing

3 Tips to Relieve Allergy Symptoms

  1. Use microfiber cleaning products. Dust allergies can be treated with antihistamines and other medications, but you will also benefit by regularly cleaning to help maintain a dust free environment. Microfiber is an effective way to capture even the tiniest microbes. Choose microfiber mops and microfiber cleaning cloths to remove harmful allergens from your home or office.
  2. Keep Windows Closed. Many people love springtime because they can open their windows and enjoy the fresh air. But many times, pollen can enter the home and cause allergy symptoms to flare up. It is better to keep windows shut and use air conditioners for those with allergies.
  3. Use HEPA filtration vacuums. By cleaning carpets with a HEPA filter vacuum, dust and other harmful allergens that are tracked in on shoes are filtered out of the air. Normal vacuums simply put tiny microbes back into the air.

What other changes have you made to relieve allergies and improve the air quality in your home or office?

    Thank you for the information, but just because a vacuum cleaner has a HEPA filter, does not mean that it will not blow a lot of dirt/allergens back into the room. The machine must ‘leakage free’-which the least are.

    Thanks for this useful information. As an allergy sufferer myself I was unaware of HEPA vacuums.

    Keeping a home clean and well ventilated are the first steps to preventing allergens from building up inside your home. Make sure that everything gets dusted, vacuumed, mopped, or swept before lots of dust builds up on it.

    I also think HEPA filters are great. My son always gets hay fever around this time and I feel like the crazy cleaning mother. But hey, it’s our lungs and health that absorb all the toxins in the air. I also keep bamboo in my house (my friend told me it helps absorb dust).

    Very informative article. I am very sensitive to allergens so I always vacuum our place once or twice a day. Thanks for sharing.

    I would add that the number of people suffering from allergies is increasing every year. Most likely this is due to the use of all genetically modified food more.

    Well if you are going through those allergies then it is important to consult the doctor as soon as possible.

    I want to give a few tips that can help reduce allergy symptoms. First, don’t smoke in the room and, if possible, don’t use fireplaces. Second, select and buy a quality air purifier.
