Nasal allergies cause sneezing and an itchy, runny, and stuffy nose. The best way to prevent and treat these allergies or hay fever is to minimize exposure to allergens:
•Stay indoors as much as possible when mold and pollen counts are high.
•Schedule outdoor activities for early afternoon, when pollen counts are at their lowest.
•Keep windows closed.
• Run an air conditioner on hot days.
• Keep the air conditioning on when driving your car.
•Minimize activities with heavy pollen exposure, such as lawn mowing and leaf blowing.
