6 Things Get You Ready For Wyoming’s Worst Allergy Season
If you hate Wyoming’s allergy season, you likely already know when that pops up every year. It’s summer, according to website alencorp.com, which not only names every state’s worst allergy season, and it also has advice on keeping down symptoms.
First of all, here are the plants and trees to avoid in Wyoming, and in most western states: Ragweed, Elm, Maple, Ryegrass, Sagebrush, Oak, and Russian Thistle.
If your system is not terribly chronic, maybe you didn’t even know about some of these things you can try when allergies do go haywire.
Antihistamines come in eye drops, nasal sprays, and oral medication like Zyrtec and Claritin. Used often, they will at least give you temporary relief.
Allergy Shots are for severe seasonal pollen allergies. The shots build your body’s tolerance to what drives sinuses crazy. Some people need months or years worth of allergy shots to become “immune,” but done regularly, shots should have you feeling much better.
Saline sprays calm your sinuses by reducing inflammation and keeping nasal passages moist. Sprays only cost a few bucks at the drug store and may curb pollen allergies before they get out of control.
Local Honey in a spoonful every day helps by building up your tolerance - much like allergy shots. The only catch is it has to be local raw honey collected within miles of your home, since that’s the pollen you’ll most likely encounter. Consider starting your own honeybee hive to harvest your own natural medicine.
Herbs that people have always relied on are a form of medicine. Just get the right ones, while some plants cause you to sneeze and itch, others help those symptoms subside. If you’d like to make your own, here are some recipes.
Air Purifier Allergies are inside your home as well as outside. It’s recommended you try an allergy-reducing air purifier. When your windows are shut, some devices can purify 1,100 square feet of air. You’ll at least start breathing better.
