Some people notice a flare in their seasonal allergies in early July, peaking around the 4th of July Holiday. In the mid-west, the most likely reason for this flare is an allergy to grass. In this part of the country, grass season tends to have two peaks: one in early June and another one in early July.
What can be done about grass allergy? Here are a few tips.
Avoid grassy areas as much as possible, especially during mowing or right after mowing.
Wear a good quality mask during mowing.
Take a shower after exposure to grass.
Saline sinus irrigation after exposure to grass.
Use allergy medications (detailed in previous posts).
Allergy immunotherapy for grass in the form of allergy injections or allergy oral drops.
