Are you sick of the constant annoyance of your allergies? Interested in finding an alternative for your ailment other than over the counter drugs? Lots of people experiment with different types of drugs to try and get some relief, though it's hard to pinpoint the best one to help with your particular type of allergy. Allergies can range from mild to moderate, to severe. They can include sinus problems, sneezing, itchy and/or watery eyes, headaches, and the list goes on and on. It's hard to live your life and be productive when your allergies are making you miserable all the time, but you can minimize your symptoms by finding out what in your home is causing the allergies and attacking the problem at the source.
The main culprit for allergens in your home is dust, but just dusting everywhere won't get rid of the problem on its own. You might have rugs or stuffed animals that contain a lot of dust, and these things will just have to be removed as it's difficult to keep these things dust free. You should wash your bedding and any other blankets you use at least once a week. If anyone smokes in your house, kindly ask them to smoke outside... and if you smoke yourself, I don't need to tell you that you should quit!
Pet dander is notorious for causing allergies, so you might need to part with a dog or cat for the sake of living allergy free. Getting rid of a pet is a tough decision, so you'll have to weight the pros and cons of having your pet vs. suffering with allergies, it's definitely a personal choice.
Also, vacuum regularly! You should also vacuum your mattress. Most people don't do this; your mattress actually harbors quite a bit of dust so you want to make sure and give it attention. Also make sure you have a HEPA filter in your vacuum.
These are just a few things you can do to rid your home of allergens. There are plenty more things your can do. With a little research and creativity, you can eliminate all the main sources of allergens in your home and improve the quality of your life.
