You will be happy to know that there are a few things that you can do from the comfort of your own home to help you to fight those nasty allergies.
The first step is to remove the allergen or at least limit how much exposure you have to the allergen.
For example, if you have an allergy toward cats, then it would be in your best interest to avoid going to friends and family's homes that have cats as pets.
Or if you are going to be around this type of pet, make sure to wash your hands when you leave.
If your eyes start to become itchy and aggravated from all of the rubbing from you trying to relieve the itching and you are unable to get to allergy medicine, you may want to consider rinsing your eyes with cool water.
This can also be helpful if you have respiratory allergies or if you got the allergen into your eye.
Yet another option includes using a saline solution for your nose.
More often than not when suffering from respiratory allergies the irritant in question can lodge itself in your nose.
You can easily find saline solution at a drug store.
Or, if you would like to save some money you can make your own at home by mixing a teaspoon of salt in a pint of distilled warm water along with a pinch of baking soda.
Once you have mixed the solution together simply lean over your sink and gently sniff the solution up one nostril at a time.
If you have spent a lot of time outside during allergy season then you are going to want to wash your hair once you come inside and in doing so, you can remove pollen and other air born allergens that have lodged themselves in your hair.
Also, avoid being around cigarette smoke because this too can cause your allergies to flair.
By following these simple home remedies you will notice that your allergies severity can be reduced greatly.
