The Doctors are joined by Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer, MinuteClinic, and Vice President, CVS Health. She’s here to help us examine everything the nearly 50 million allergy suffers need to know about allergies – including tips on how to keep them at bay.
Most common causes of allergies include:
- Animal dander
- Dust mites
First, allergy sufferers should address triggers in their homes. Angela’s tips on managing allergies in the home include:
- Keep your windows closed if you are allergic to grass, pollen and trees and use your air conditioner.
- Take a shower and wash your hair if you have been outside to remove pollen from your hair.
- If animal dander is a trigger, do no keep your pets in your home.
- Use a mattress cover and change bedding often to help with dust mite allergies.
- Avoid contact with dust collecting items in the home such as curtains, carpet, and knickknacks.
- If you are sensitive to mold, use a dehumidifier to reduce mold and moisture.
It is also important to avoid possible mistakes when treating your allergies, including:
- Not anticipating and preparing for seasonal allergies; plan ahead when going to areas and regions that might trigger allergies
- Not being diligent about taking medications as prescribed and directed
- Ignoring symptoms and not seeking help from your medical provider
