The itchy, watery eyes. The sneezing. The scratchy throat. It’s hay fever season and that means only one thing: Finding ways to cope with fall seasonal allergies.

If you have hay fever, or fall seasonal allergies, the end of summer can mean misery. Hay fever, also known as seasonal rhinitis, is no fun. But luckily, there are things you can do to relieve suffering.

Here are four ways to cope with fall seasonal allergies, aka hay fever.

Stay inside

While this may seem cruel on a beautiful fall day, limiting your time outside may help relieve seasonal allergy symptoms. And if you can’t stay inside, be sure to take a shower and change clothes to remove allergens from your skin, hair and fabrics.

See your allergist

There’s no need to suffer. There are medications to try and we even offer allergy shots that can, over time, reduce symptoms. Our team of experts can help you find your allergen triggers and prescribe the proper treatment so you don’t have to feel bad.

Rinse your nose and eyes

Flushing allergens out with saline nasal and eye rinses might seem extreme but this natural remedy can really make a difference. If you want to try them, there are also medicated eye and nasal rinses that can relieve symptoms as well.

Keep an allergen free home

By keeping your house clean and clutter free, you can reduce your allergy symptoms. Vacuum daily and change your bedding often. Clean and replace filters. Dust and mop. If you have pets, make sure they get regular baths too.

Delegate outdoor chores

If you have seasonal allergies, it might be best to delegate outdoor chores like mowing, weeding and leaf removal. If you can’t get out of these chores, wear a mask over your nose and mouth. It might seem extreme, but it will help.
