Fight Back Against Spring Allergies

(Family Features) Springtime brings warmer weather, outdoor family fun, BBQs, ballgames, and for many Americans, the start of allergy season.

As you plan outdoor activities this spring, Dr. Travis Stork, ER Physician and host of the Emmy Award-winning talk show "The Doctors," has partnered with Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the maker of Arm & Hammer Simply Saline nasal mists, to share his top five tips to ring in spring for a for a healthy and congestion-free spring season.

Keep it Simple and Natural
The overuse of over-the-counter nasal decongestants can actually cause your congestion to return much worse than when it first appeared. Using products that are drug-free and derived from natural ingredients can help. Dr. Stork says, "A product like Arm & Hammer Simply Saline Nasal Mist can be extremely effective in clearing nasal congestion, without side effects."

Know When to Work Out
Staying active and exercising for at least 30 minutes a day is a great way to fight off illness, but for allergy sufferers, be sure to plan workouts accordingly. Pollen counts are highest in the morning, so it's best to plan to work out during a time of day when pollen levels are a bit lower.

Allergy-Proof the House
Allergens exist indoors and outdoors, so take steps to make your home allergy-proof. A simple way to keep allergens at bay is to wipe your feet and take off your shoes when entering the home. You can also prevent mold by keeping the indoor air dry with a dehumidifier and remove allergens by cleaning the floors with a vacuum that has a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter.

Mind the Kids
Congestion-causing allergens are everywhere - on the bus, in the park, on our clothes and even in our hair. To avoid any impact on your family fun this spring, especially for the little ones, Dr. Stork says, "Keep congestion remedies on hand, like Arm & Hammer Simply Saline Baby Nasal Relief for both infants and kids."

Wash Away Those Allergens
Don't ditch your favorite outdoor hobby just because you suffer from allergies, ditch the allergens stuck to clothes, bedding and bags. After a day in the garden, at the ballpark or family picnic, remember to wash clothes, bedding and bags as often as possible.
