Tips for reducing your exposure to hay fever triggers this Spring.

Tips for Reducing Hay Fever

The Sneezing Season

For those of us who suffer from allergies, warmer Spring days can also signal the start of hay fever season. As the pollen count starts to rise and circulate we are reaching for the tissue box to combat common symptoms such as runny noses, watery eyes, itchy ears and lots of sneezing.  

Reducing your exposure

Managing hay fever is all about reducing your exposure to the triggers and allergens. Try some of these tested and true techniques to minimise your hay fever symptoms.

  • Wear sunglasses to keep allergens out of your eyes. Wrap around glasses are especially useful.
  • Let someone else mow the lawn for you! (Calvary can help with basic gardening support).
  • Monitor the daily pollen from radio reports or visit weatherzone.com.au
  • Stay indoors on dry, windy days.  

Top 3 Tips to reduce exposure

  1. Take a shower and wash your hair after going outside when the pollen count is high. 
  2. Don’t dry washing outside if counts are high – pollen may get trapped in the fibres of clothes and linen. 
  3. Put Vaseline on the inside of your nostrils to prevent pollen from entering your nasal passages.
