Spring allergy tips from webMD include:

  • Try to stay indoors whenever the pollen count is very high (pollen counts usually peak in the mornings)
  • Keep your doors and windows closed whenever possible
  • Clean the air filters in your home often. Also, clean bookshelves, vents, and other places where pollen can collect
  • Wash your hair/head after going outside, because pollen can collect there
  • Vacuum twice a week. Wear a mask, because vacuuming can kick up pollen, mold, and dust that were trapped in your carpet

Ragweed tips from webMD include:

  • stay indoors as much as possible in the 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. time period
  • track the pollen count in your area
  • At home and in the car, keep the windows closed and the air conditioner on.
  • Change your clothes after spending time outdoors.
  • Shower before bed to remove pollen, especially from your face and hair.
  • Try nasal irrigation 1-2 times a day.
  • Equip your bedroom (and other rooms?) with a HEPA air filter.
