Guide To Reducing Your Allergies

Updated: Wednesday, May 21 2014, 07:26 AM CDT

Molds, Cedar, pollen, allergies in Austin are always an issue, but you don't have to suffer. There are plenty of easy remedies to reduce your watery eyes and runny noses.

If you suffer every year with Cedar Fever, Dr. Seth Hollander with Greater Austin Allergy says now is the time to start allergy shots. Over a a period of months you can gradually build up your tolerance just in time for Cedar season in January. Even better, Dr. Hollander says most insurance covers the treatment.

You can also get a handle on your allergies by making simple adjustments in your home. Dr. Hollander suggests replacing your pillows every two years and using zippered pillow covers to keep out dust and dust mites. As for your sheets, he suggests washing them weekly in hot water.

For the kids, Dr. Hollander says you need to either wash stuffed animals monthly or put them in a sealed bag and place them in the freezer to clean them.

It's also helpful to wash your hair often if you're outside a lot, leave your shoes by the door so you don't track in the outdoors and keep your pets out of the bedroom.

Dusting frequently and vacuuming often is also recommended to reduce allergies.
