      Great Tips to tackle eye allergies

      Millions of Americans suffer from allergic conjunctivitis that leaves the eyes red and puffy. Other symptoms include itching, tearing, a burning sensation, swollen eyelids, blurred vision, and sensitivity to light. Sometimes, they accompany nasal Allergies or with eczema.

      Clear mites

      If dust mites are triggering your eye allergies, get appropriate bedding and pillow cases.  Wash your sheets in hot water. Make sure that the humidity levels in your home are maintained between 30% and 50%.  Don’t sweep your floors as this can stir up allergens, instead wipe.

      Avoid rubbing

      If you have an eye allergy, you may tend to instinctively rub your eyes. However, it’s important to keep your hands off your eyes. Remove contact lenses if you are a lens user.

      Stay clear of outdoor triggers

      If you find that you get eye allergies when you are outside during spring or summer, this could be seasonal allergic conjunctivitis. When the pollen count outside is high, stay inside and use the air conditioner. Grass, pollen and weeds are the worst for those with eye allergies.

      Key allergy triggers indoors

      Pets can trigger off allergies for some. If so keep away from them, if inevitable, wash your hands after touching them and change clothes. Make sure your pets do not come into the bedroom. Clear out mold from bathrooms, kitchens, and basements where they usually lurk.

      Medication

      There is a wide range of eye drops available to treat eye allergies. Antihistamines and mast cell stabilizers work by blocking chemicals that cause itches. Decongestant drops work by shrinking blood vessels in the eyes and this clears the redness. Tear substitutes wash away allergens from your eyes and keep them moist.

      Allergy shots can help too. Antihistamines and decongestants are quite effective but they can leave you feeling sleepy. If you are suffering from high b.p., do check with your doctor. Make an action plan on how to handle things if you get an allergy.
