Wash all fruits thoroughly
When it is possible, it is good habit to avoid eating fruit peels or at least cook the fruits. Spring allergies, as a result of pollen, occur when you eat fruits with their peels or in raw form. Therefore, by cooking or peeling fruit, you reduce the risk or avoid allergic reactions completely.

This will go a long way in preventing health problems such as asthma or frequent sneezing among your family members if you give the pet a bath frquently.
Bathe your children every night
When children are playing outside, pollen will stick to their hair and clothes. Thus, you have to ensure you bathe your children immediately as they come in. This ensures that the pollen wont spread over the bed linens and pillow cases leading to allergic reactions. After the bath, dress them with clean and fresh clothes.
Ensure the windows are closed
Many people like opening their windows or turning their ceiling fans on. However, during the spring season, it is advisable to ensure that the windows are closed most times. This prevents the pollen from getting inside of the house making the air inside the house allergen free and healthy.
Keep the nose clean
The nose acts as the air filter for the lungs. Ensure the childs nose is always clean and remove all the pollen trapped inside. The most effective way is to buy a spray bottle of nasal saline and then squeeze it in the nose.
If you can prevent the cause of allergies within yourself it will be a less dramatic Allergy season.
