Prevention Outdoors

One way to reduce allergic reactions is simply to avoid the substances causing them (the allergens). But this can severely restrict your lifestyle if you are allergic to airborne allergens like the pollen that causes seasonal hayfever.

During hayfever season:

► Use a face mask when gardening, particularly when mowing if you’re sensitive to grass
► Plan your activities outside the 6am to midday peak pollen production period
► Make the most of wet days when pollen is washed out of the air 

Knowing the pollen count will tell you which days are best spent indoors.


Here's how to tackle both the causes and the symptoms of allergies.
