Keeping yourself hydrated is an easy way to prevent and treat many bronchial allergy symptoms. Your mucosal membranes can become irritated if you aren’t getting enough water. Without proper hydration, your bronchial tubes can be irritated by an excess of mucus secretion.
Consider using a neti pot for relief from inflamed nasal passages. You can get neti pots at almost any health food store. These devices reduce the amount of mucus in your nostrils, as well as eradicate any pollen that might be lurking there. Mix one teaspoon of sea salt with a pint of warm water and rinse your nostrils twice a day.
If you have pets and are an allergy sufferer, it may be difficult to isolate your pets as the cause of the problem. The gold standard for testing for pet allergies is to visit an allergy specialist and have a pet dander test done. You won’t necessarily have to rehome your pet, but you might have to take anti-allergy medication. If you see evidence of mice or other pests, call an exterminator. Cockroaches and rodent droppings can aggravate your allergies. A professional exterminator can quickly and safely eliminate these pests from your environment, allowing you to breath more easily.
Call a professional to search your home and eliminate mold buildup in order to reduce your exposure to allergens. Allergens in your home can and often do come from unseen mold behind walls and under floorboards, yet mold is notoriously difficult to detect. A professional can find troublesome mold and get rid of not only the mold itself but offer advice for preventing future mold buildup as well.
