7 Tips to Manage Grass Allergies in Temple, TexasGrass allergies are a huge pain during Temple’s summer months. 

If you’re allergic to grass pollen, you’ll experience symptoms of hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis in the medical world. 

No one wants to spend the first few months of summer sneezing, wiping their nose, and confined to their house to avoid triggers. Follow these strategies to prevent allergies from getting the best of you.

7 Tips to Prevent Grass Allergies 

If you’re allergic to grass pollen, you’ll experience standard discomfort and allergy symptoms from late April to early June. 

Runny nose, watery and itchy eyes, and congestion are common symptoms. Your symptoms can be a mild nuisance or even debilitating enough to call out of work. Although there are hundreds of different grass species, only a few can trigger pollen allergies. Bermuda grass is a major allergy trigger and extremely common throughout Central Texas. 

Fortunately, you can take a few precautions to keep your allergy symptoms to a minimum. 

  1. Check the pollen forecast before starting your day.
  2. Ask someone else to mow your lawn and keep it trimmed low.
  3. Keep windows shut tight before mowing the lawn.
  4. Change your clothes and shower as soon ass you get home in the evening.
  5. Cover your hair and wear glasses outside.
  6. Don’t wear shoes in the house.
  7. Vacuum and bathe pets regularly.

Try Allergy Drops to Target Symptoms at Their Source

Allergy drops bring innovative and effective immunotherapy to the comfort of your own home. Working much like allergy shots, allergy drops introduce tiny amounts of grass pollen to your immune system so it can work on building a tolerance year-round. 

By the time grass pollen season rolls around, your immune system should release less histamines – if any! 

Most people notice that allergy drops start working within a few weeks, when taken correctly, and the results last for up to five years.
