Fall Allergy Prevention

As summer draws to a close, autumn is not far away. Children with fall allergies should act early to avoid or reduce allergy symptoms. Fall, like spring, is a season of high allergies, when the pollen released by subtilis and other plants peaks. For example, ragweed can cause allergic symptoms from August to December, and the organs often affected are: nose, eyes, gastrointestinal tract, lower respiratory tract, and skin.

Common allergy symptoms

  • Itchy and sore throat
  • Itchy, runny nose and sneezing
  • wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Itchy eyes, Redness and tearing
  • Cough
  • Itching and rash
  • Stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, stomach ache, etc.
  • Common autumn allergens

    • Dust mites: Although dust mites are indoor allergens and are present all year round, they are more obvious in autumn, especially after heating.
    • Outdoor mold: More common in moist environments, such as in piles of fallen leaves.
    • Weeds: such as hogweed, sage.
    • Rageweed pollen: Pollen can travel far away in windy conditions and is highly allergenic.

    How to prevent

    • Close windows: Closing windows can effectively Prevent pollen from entering the house, and the pollen index is highest during the day. Open windows for ventilation when it rains, as there is less pollen in the air at this time. Those with fresh air systems should be actively used.
    • Air filter: People with allergies in the home need to use an air filter.
    • Wearing a mask: It can effectively block the direct intrusion of pollen.
    • Bathing: Taking a bath rinses out allergens stuck in your hair and on your skin.
    • Vacuuming: Frequently vacuuming and wiping furniture surfaces such as furniture, floors, and curtains can effectively remove allergens.
    • Wash your clothes frequently: As long as you go out, your clothes will be covered with allergens, and washing your clothes in time can remove these allergens. Also be careful not to hang your clothes outside to dry, otherwise you will get allergens.
    • Change bedding frequently: also to avoid contact with allergens, pay attention to use hot water when washing to more effectively kill dust mites, mold and pollen.
    • Car wash: Pollen can also be on the surface and inside of the car, and it is also important to remove it in time.
    • Eat the right foods: Be aware of some seasonal food allergies and avoid these foods.
    • Reduce stress: Don't forget that a person's mood is also related to the severity of allergy symptoms, and reducing stress can at least slow down these symptoms.
    Autumn is coming, I hope all parents can be familiar with the precautions for allergies in autumn. Some children even need to start preventive medication ahead of time as prescribed by a doctor.
