Health Tip: When Pollen Counts are High
Avoid the outdoors

(HealthDay News) -- High pollen counts can trigger sneezing, watery eyes, itching and coughing among people who are allergic.

The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology offers this advice:

  • When pollen counts are high, avoid lots of time outdoors.
  • If you have to mow the lawn or rake leaves, wear a dust mask.
  • Immediately wash clothes that you wore during yard work. Don't wear them inside the home.
  • Frequently clean or replace the air conditioner's filter.
  • Don't dry clothing outdoors.
  • If you plan a vacation, choose locations and seasons when pollen counts tend to be low.
