Pollens from trees, grasses, and weeds typically cause seasonal allergy symptoms. The East Texas piney woods and the cedar-laden Hill Country are typically high pollen count areas that can be devastating to someone with allergy problems. Although you usually can't avoid these allergens completely, unless you never go outside, you can reduce your exposure to levels that may be tolerable.
1.) Keep windows closed in your home and in your car.
2.) Avoid outdoor activities when pollen counts are very high or it is very windy.
3.) Take a bath or shower or at least change clothes after being outdoors on days with high pollen counts.
4.) Wash your hands and face frequently to get rid of pollen.
5.) Try using a HEPA air cleaner or filter inside your home.
If you’re planning a move to Texas, you might want to check the area first to make sure you won’t be adding additional problems to your situation. Allergy problems can make your life miserable if you move to an area where there is an increased incidence of pollen and other factors that may contribute to your allergies.
Be aware. Be informed. Be prepared.
