If the first days of spring bring you a recurring runny nose and watery, itchy eyes every year, then you ultimately need to take your seasonal allergies seriously. Although most allergic reactions occur in childhood, these are sometimes only triggered at a later age when exposed to individual external factors. According to the latest studies, pollen allergy is the most common allergy in Germany today! That's why we've collected a few clever ideas on how to get rid of hay fever quickly! From now on you can eagerly breathe in the fresh spring air!
The first pollen fly earlier and earlier every year
Most of the pollen particles of trees and shrubs are already floating in the air on warm, dry and windy days in mid-March/beginning of April, so at this time it is necessary to reduce spending time outdoors and avoid trips to areas with lush vegetation. Early in the morning, at night, in wet and cloudy weather or immediately after the rain, the concentration of pollen in the air is much lower, which significantly reduces allergy symptoms!

Take care of the cleanliness in your home
It's strange, but even house dust contains countless pollen, so you have to regularly remove dirt from all surfaces! The presence of various chemicals in the air (from cleaning products), cigarette smoke or airborne particles from various fuels (coal, wood) can also exacerbate respiratory allergies. Never use air humidifiers and purifiers, because these increase the humidity and lead to serious problems with house dust mites.

By regularly wiping the surfaces, you ensure yourself a clean and allergy-free environment
windows - closed, air conditioner - on
If you suffer from the symptoms of pollen allergy, you should ideally keep the windows shut and use an air conditioner to refresh and change the air in the room. A fixed temperature of 18-21 degrees would be the best solution to your he alth problems. However, the HEPA filter must be cleaned regularly and replaced every spring and then again at the beginning of summer - e.g. in March and then again in June. In this case, a HEPA air purifier would limit the influx of pollen to a minimum.
The same applies when driving a car - do not open the windows, but use the comfortable air conditioning of modern vehicles and leave the cleaning and maintenance of the system in the hands of experienced mechanics.
The air conditioning filter should be changed at least twice a year
Nasal rinse and eye protection
The frequent nasal rinses are definitely recommended for pollen allergies. To achieve this goal, one could either use a nasal douche or cool water with s alt - this will remove the allergens stuck to the nasal mucosa!
Because the pollen could get on the lenses of the eyes and cause severe inflammation, it is best to replace the lenses with glasses! You should also have anti-allergic nasal sprays and eye drops to hand at all times.

Natural remedies to prevent pollen allergy
Fish oil is rich in fatty acids that improve the functioning of the cardiovascular system, alleviate the symptoms of pollen allergy and have a general anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Both taking vitamin C and drinking nettle tea prevent the deposit of histamine in our body, which has a vasodilating effect and could therefore increase allergies. A glass of fresh carrot juice before breakfast proves to be another great helper in the fight against pollen allergy - just blend it together with an orange, add mint for refreshment and enjoy a tonic and he althy drink! Onion and garlic are high in quercetin, which tearing and itching of the eyes noticeably reduced. Freshly extracted honey acts as a natural vaccine against airborne allergens - with 4-5 tablespoons a day you will quickly achieve the desired result!
And of course…don't forget to visit your allergist on time!
