Nasal Allergy Relief

Put Out the Welcome Mat
Put Out the Welcome Mat

You can put a large welcome mat outside your house. This is done so that your family
members and friends can wipe their shoes before they enter your house. This keeps
the dust away and provides you relief if you are suffering from dust allergy.

You can even use an allergen trapping filter like the pleated paper filters with a MERV
(Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value). These have a rating of 7 to 13 and are almost effective
as the HEPA filters. You can even use electrostatic filters as they are also found to trap the
allergens.

Nasal block due to an allergic reaction can be the most irritating thing. To relieve
your nasal block, you can use a neti pot for cleaning your nasal passages. You can
use lukewarm saline solution made of distilled water or sterile water. Tilt your head
towards the sink, pour the saline solution into one nostril and drain the solution out of
the other.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

Dust mites and tiny bugs that live in your sofa, bed, and carpet can cause mild to
moderate nasal allergies. Keep your indoor humidity levels low. This controls the
bugs and dust mites. These tiny creatures thrive in warm and moist air. So, use
dehumidifiers and humidifiers to maintain the humidity in your home. Keep the
humidity in your home between 30-40%.

Mold & Mildew Killers

Mold is another common allergen that loves moist and warm areas like the bathroom
and kitchen. So, clean, dry and disinfect your rooms to keep them mold free. You
can use water, soap, and a stiff brush. Use disinfectants like chlorine bleach, vinegar,
or hydrogen peroxide.
