Outdoor Fall Activities That May Affect Your Allergies

Fall is a great time to enjoy the outdoors with your friends or family. The weather has cooled down a bit from the heat of summer, but it isn't cold just yet. This in-between stage makes this time of the year perfect for spending time outside. However, for those who suffer from allergies, autumn can be fraught with peril. As the leaves turn and the weather shifts, allergens are released into the atmosphere, making it difficult for allergy sufferers to breathe. Read on to learn about some of the most common allergy-inducing fall activities and what you can do to protect yourself. 

Popular Fall Activities that Aggravate Allergies 

If you suffer from allergies, there are a number of fall activities that could exacerbate your symptoms, including: 

  • Raking and jumping in leaves 

  • Hayrides 

  • Corn Mazes 

  • Setting up holiday decorations 

  • Harvesting fruits and vegetables 

  • Household chores 

  • Exercising outdoors 

  • And many more 

This is just a small sampling. If you are an allergy sufferer, you know that even the slightest change in air quality can set you sneezing and hacking your way through the day while struggling to see through itchy, watery eyes. Fortunately, you don't have to resign yourself to staying inside all autumn long. 

Allergy Prevention Tips

 

The best way to protect yourself from allergy attacks during the fall is to keep your house free of dust, pollen, and other allergy-inducers. Aim to clean your home at least once a week, or hire a housekeeper to handle the dirty work for you. This will minimize your exposure to allergens. When doing laundry, hang any clothes that can't go in the dryer inside your home rather than outdoors. Allergens tend to cling to wet clothes, so drying them indoors will reduce the effect. 

Whenever you are going outside for an extended period, don't forget to take any allergy medicine your doctor has recommended. Depending on the particular medication, you may need to take the pill several hours in advance of exposure, so be sure to plan accordingly. Always check the air quality in your area before heading out. If pollen is especially high on a particular day, you may want to put off any errands that aren't especially urgent. Wait for a day when pollen counts are lower.
