Tips for reducing ragweed allergy symptoms this fall

Schedule an appointment with your doctor to talk about what you can do to prevent and treat ragweed allergy symptoms.

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), 10 percent of children and 7.8 percent of adults in the United States suffer from ragweed allergies — also known as hay fever. While ragweed allergy season traditionally peaks in mid-September, Fox News reports that factors such as climate change are causing it to last about four weeks longer than usual.

That being said, it's possible that your symptoms may last from August all the way through November, so it's important to take the right steps toward preventing and treating them. Here are several tips to keep in mind: 
• Schedule an appointment with your physician to ask about allergy shots and prescription treatments 
• Take a shower and change your clothes when you get home to wash away allergens you may have picked up outside
• Use nasal spray to clean out your nose and a gentle rinse for your eyes.

Another great way to get allergy relief is by investing in an air purifier for your home. Modern houses are known for being tightly insulated, which means that all kinds of pollutants can easily become trapped indoors. For the estimated one in every three individuals who suffer from asthma or allergies, this problem can significantly affect their quality of life, making it difficult for them to be comfortable in their own homes.
