Allergy relief is the cry of the day for millions of people. There are a number of ways to get relief from allergies in varying degrees. If you are allergic to pollen, make use of the air conditioner and keep the windows closed. Fans stir up dust, so avoid using them. Filtering the air with a high efficiency filter will keep the air clear of most allergens.

Inside humidity of less than 50% will help prevent mold. Keep pets out of the bedroom area, bathe them frequently, and use an allergen-preventive treatment to reduce the dander on their skin. Hardwood floors are much better than carpet for the allergy sufferer. If you have carpeted floors, vacuum at least twice a week to keep dust and dander from collecting. Do not forget about vacuuming the carpet in your vehicle. It is often overlooked and can be a source of huge amounts of dust.

Even doing everything possible to reduce the allergen content in the home and surroundings, allergies will still happen. Allergy relief can also come by using medications designed to counteract the allergic reaction to the offending allergen. It is important to read and understand the risks and side effects of all medications.

The alternative to prescription and over-the-counter medications is the natural or homeopathic method of treatment. There are many natural products on the market designed to provide allergy relief without the undesired effects of other medications. Frequent use of nasal irrigation and sprays will keep the passageway moist, facilitating the movement of natural drainage to avoid the pooling of bacteria.
