Below are some self-help strategies to help you tackle spring allergies.

  • Use a humidifier to relieve stuffy sinuses. Hot showers help, too.
  • Try nasal irrigation with over-the-counter saline sprays several times a day to open nasal passages. Note: Nose sprays containing decongestants relieve post-nasal drip but may have significant side effects if used more than 3 days.
  • Drink water throughout the day to help thin mucus.
  • Keep windows and doors shut at home and in your car.
  • Check pollen counts in your area at aaaai.org/global/nab-pollen-counts?ipb=1.
  • Take a shower, wash your hair and change your clothes after being outdoors, especially if pollen counts are high.
