      How to travel with allergies

      Do you have an allergy and scared to travel for fear of a flare-up? Here are some great tips that will help you manage your allergy and stop it from ruining your trip. A little bit of precaution and care will help you enjoy your time.

      Consult your doctor

      Before you travel, check what the climate would be like at the place you are travelling to, especially if you suffer from seasonal allergies. Discuss with your doctor about this and ask him to prescribe appropriate medication. If you are on antihistamines, start taking them well in advance before you travel so that they can build up in your body.

      Check your medication

      Make sure that you have adequate quantities of your medication. Take time to check the airline’s policy on medication. Keep the original packaging of the medication so that you could show it at security points.

      Research and discuss

      If you suffer from food-related allergies, check the area you are travelling to and restaurants in that area. When you visit the restaurant, ask about the ingredients. You can also call restaurants where you have made reservations ahead and ask them to customize to ensure the food does not trigger an allergy. Pack snacks that you can have on board.

      Avoid hotel pillows and toiletries

      When you have an allergy, it’s better to carry your own anti-allergenic pillow. Stay away from hotel toiletries as they may contain ingredients that could trigger an allergy.

      Get a good weather app

      Download a reliable, complete weather app, this can be a useful tool in planning ahead by keeping you aware of the pollen count and humidity levels.

      Make an allergy plan

      Plan how you will handle your allergy in case you get an attack. Keep your friends or family with you informed about your allergy and what they can do to help in case you get an allergy attack.
