2.Your Prevalence for Pillows
Maybe you like to read in bed? However, that mound of pillows on your bed act as allergen magnets (i.e., dust). Same goes for stuffed animals on kids’ beds.
3. Letting Pets Rule the Roost
It might be cute when Fido snores beside you at night or Fluffy jumps up on your counter top. However, your pet can track pollen, dust, mold, and all types of allergens into your house—even if you’re not allergic to them.
4. Epi Pen Ignorance
Epi pens aren’t just for decoration. So if you require one on hand due to the risk of a serious allergic reaction, learn how to use it properly and teach others how to help you should an attack occur.
5. Driving with the Windows Down
You keep your windows closed in the house during pollen season—well the same goes for the car. If it’s hot outside, using the car AC will drastically reduce the amount of pollen you breathe in.
6. Morning Showers
Pollen and allergens stick to your body, hair, and clothing as you encounter them. So you can imagine how much you’re weighed down by them after an 8-hour workday? That’s why showing, or just rinsing off, post work is a good idea.
