Latest Allergies News
(HealthDay News) -- Between holiday greenery and traveling to distant destinations, the holiday season may abound with allergy triggers.
- If Christmas trees make your allergies flare, let your tree dry out for a week in the garage, and give it a shake before taking it inside. Or opt for an artificial tree.
- If using artificial snow or flocking, carefully read instructions before you spray and avoid breathing in fumes. This will help ensure that the fumes don't aggravate your asthma.
- Leaving your pet home during your holiday travels may trigger allergy symptoms on your return.
- Try to control holiday stress, which can trigger an asthma attack.
