Allergic reaction prevention indoors
The most effective way to prevent allergic reaction in your home is simply to avoid the things that trigger allergic reactions. So your method of prevention will depend on what’s causing the problem.
► Wash pets regularly to remove flaky skin ► Keep pets out of bedrooms, and outdoors whenever possible
► Cover mattresses and pillows with materials that are impermeable to dust mites ► Vacuum regularly ► Consider floorboards rather than carpets
► Keep doors and windows closed during hayfever season, particularly when it’s windy
If anyone in your family is still suffering from symptoms, like sneezing, runny nose, and watery itchy eyes, try an effective, non-drowsy treatment like Claratyne.
