Like many, I have allergies. The list is actually pretty impressive when you look at the amount of things that stuff my nose and make my eyes water:
+ about 15 more.
Like many, I have also passed along the "Sneeze Genes" to both my children. In the war to breathe, I have discovered a few things that - if done often - Will indeed make a difference.
-Vacuum and vacuum OFTEN. A lot of allergy-causing problems live in your carpet. Get a good machine and use it at least once a week, if not more. Make sure to vacuum your furniture too!
-Change your bedding. Dust Mites LOVE living where you sleep. Wash all sheets in HOT water.
-Sweep and dust hard surfaces. Same reason as vacuuming!!
-Avoid being outdoors when pollen is at it's highest - you can monitor this on several websites that Track this on a worldwide bases, or just go to www.weather.com for the latest.
-NO PETS (I know - what kid doesn't love their dog or cat?)
