Check out these tips from Chris Iliades, MD from Everyday Health for allergy fighting tips and tricks to try during sneezin’ season:

1. Wear Sunglasses to Keep Pollen Out of Your Eyes 

An estimated 35 million Americans experience hay fever caused by wind-borne pollen or mold spores. Wearing sunglasses outside can reduce the amount of pollen or spores that get into your eyes. Allergy-irritated eyes are also more sensitive to sunlight, so stylish shades may help your eyes feel better, too. "The best kinds of sunglasses to wear are dark glasses that wrap around to block as much wind pollen as possible," Dr. Hong says.

2. Ditch Pollen-Producing Indoor Plants 

"Indoor houseplants that flower aren’t likely to cause a pollen allergy, because most flowering plants are pollinated by insects," Hong explains. "But indoor plant soil can let plenty of mold spores into your house." If you have hay fever or a mold allergy, keep houseplants to a minimum and definitely keep them out of your bedroom. The biggest offenders are indoor shrubs, trees, and grasses that may produce pollens.

3. Kill Dust Mites With a Hot Wash

One of the biggest causes of indoor allergies is the dust mite. These microscopic insects love to live on your bedding and stuffed animals. Hong advises washing all of your bedding in hot water and drying it in a hot dryer to kill dust mites. Keep stuffed animals off the bed, and wash sheets and blankets at least once a week in water that's 130° F or higher to limit the effects of this indoor-allergy culprit.

4. Take a Vacation From Pollen 

Hay fever is also known as seasonal allergic rhinitis, because pollens tend to be worse in specific seasons when trees, grasses, and weeds pollinate. If you can identify your trigger season, you may be able to avoid the worst pollen exposure by getting out of town for at least part of it. The beach is a great place to escape from pollen. But let’s face it: It’s hard to take a vacation that lasts an entire allergy season, so avoid pollen at home by staying inside as much as possible when pollen counts are high, especially at mid-morning and on windy days.
