Human Resources shares tips to lessen allergy symptoms

Sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, congestion — these symptoms are all too familiar to those who suffer from allergies to pollen.

In a message sent Monday to UWindsor faculty and staff, Human Resources shares tips to help lessen allergy symptoms:

  • Pay attention to pollen counts for your area. When they are high, stay indoors as much as you can.
  • If you do go outside during times of high pollen counts, remove the clothes you have worn when you get home and shower to rinse the pollen from your skin and hair.
  • Keep windows closed and air conditioning on at home and in the car to keep pollen from blowing in.
  • Vacuum and dust your home frequently to keep pollen levels down.
  • Avoid hanging laundry outside to dry as pollen can stick to clothing, sheets, and towels.
