Help to Reduce Allergy Symptoms Today

Allergy season is right around the corner.  I have bad seasonal allergies and so does my oldest son.  Last year he had a really tough time.  I was giving him a daily pill to help, but he still couldn’t get over the runny nose, sneezing, and watery eyes.  (This is a great deal on a years worth of pills!) He was miserable. I  made a few simple changes that, almost immediately, helped reduce allergy symptoms.

Are you looking for a way to reduce allergy symptoms and a daily pill just isn't working? Here are some GREAT tips for things you can do around the house.

Reduce your Allergy Symptoms

  •  I implemented a new rule. He MUST shower every night. After playing outside, the pollen would be all over his body. He would get into bed and lay all over a pillow with pollen from his hair.
  • I splurged and got the allergy air filters.  I normally don’t use those because they are so expensive, but during spring I made the switch. When it was time to switch, after 3 months, I went back to the normal ones.
  • I made the easy switch of laundry detergent.  I normally use Tide and just switched to the Free & Gentle Tide.  It has no dyes or perfumes.  Most laundry detergents have a version of this.
  • I bought allergy resistant pillow covers and a mattress cover.  This is not cheap, but it really does help. I thought that he could be allergic to dust in his bed and all the allergies outside were just too much for him to take.
  • I researched shampoo. My son was always sneezing after a shower.  I found a brand called Free and Clear.  It has no fragrance and is for sensitive skin. It’s more expensive than the shampoo I would normally buy for my children; however, he’s the only one that uses it so it lasts awhile.

I could tell a difference almost instantly after doing these things.  He is a much happier kid.  If someone in your house has allergies, think about trying some of these allergy relief measures.

    I like the idea of trying a new laundry detergent – although I love the one I use now. If it helps to alleviate some of the symptoms during those rough times of the year for my family, I am willing to try it.
