Having grass allergies is like playing a game - a game where your opponent plays by their own rules. Avoiding grass altogether can be a challenge. But you can help prevent allergic reactions to it by limiting your exposure to grass pollen.
When grass pollen levels peak in late spring and summer, limit your time outside in the morning, early afternoon, and on windy days, when pollen counts tend to be highest. Keep your lawn cut short to limit grass blooming. Also, have someone else do the mowing, and don’t be outside when they do it.
Grass pollen is easily picked up by the wind and carried into your home. So, keep windows closed, and change furnace and air conditioner filters regularly. To trap the most airborne allergens, use the highest-rated efficiency air filter available for your HVAC system.
After you’ve been outdoors, reduce tagalong grass pollen in your home by changing and washing your clothes and showering and washing your hair. If you have a pet, wipe down their fur to remove any pollen they’ve picked up outdoors.
Use these tips to help prevent grass allergies from flaring up, so you can keep your head in the game.
