When we finally thought that we could take a break from summer and spring allergies, here comes winter. Despite the fact that freezing temperatures end seasonal pollen allergies, millions of people suffer from winter allergies due to the time spent indoors during cool weather and increasing your exposure to winter allergens like house dust mites, pet and animal dander, and cockroach droppings.
Even during the cold winter months, keeping your home clean can help reduce your exposure to winter allergens and allergy symptoms. It is a smart option to have your ducts cleaned and furnace filters replaced regularly.
Keeping your bedding clean during the winter months prevents you from rolling around on itchy pet hair, dust, or pollen spores tracked in from outside. Wash bedding and towels at least once a week to keep dust mites at bay.
Many allergy medications can alleviate symptoms such as itchy eyes and a stuffy nose. The majority are available as over-the-counter medications. If you’re going to use allergy medicine to reduce allergies this winter, consult with your doctor first and get allergy testing to ensure they’re right for you.
Don’t wait for winter allergies to affect you; instead, go to your local allergy treatment center in Miami, Florida for assistance and advice on reducing your winter allergy symptoms. You could also consider immunotherapy treatment to prevent the development of new allergies or the progression of existing allergies.
