I love the warmer weather and Spring time more daylight, it's nice to go outside and plant flowers, get the garden ready, mow the yard etc. The last few day's though have been killer, my eyes have been watery, scratchy throat and a stuffed up nose, not cool at all!

Want to know ways to avoid pollen exposure?

  • Keep windows closed prevent pollen from drifting into your home.
  • Minimize early morning activity when pollen is usually emitted -- between 5-10 a.m.
  • Keep your car windows closed when traveling.
  • Stay indoors when the pollen count is reported to be high, and on windy days when pollen may be present in higher amounts in the air.
  • Take a vacation during the height of the pollen season to a more pollen-free area, such as the beach or sea.
  • Avoid mowing the lawn and freshly cut grass.
  • Machine-dry bedding and clothing. Pollen may collect in laundry if it is hung outside to dry.
  • Have a great Spring and try to avoid that pollen if you can!
