6 Tips for Preventing Allergy Symptoms

by Paraskevi Bati

Dr Konstantinos D. Dardagianopoulos gives us 6 useful tips which can help us escape those incessant sneezes.


  1. Avoid taking walks in the country or mountain treks during “peak hours”, meaning those hours when the air is “loaded” with pollen, when the wind is up or there’s a lot of sunshine.
  2. The car windows should preferably be kept closed during trips. If you feel warm, use the AC.
  3. Air out your house early in the morning (no later than 9 am), and keep the windows closed after that.
  4. Keep your house clean so that you are protected from dust and mites which exacerbate your condition.
  5. Don’t forget to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, as well as a helmet when riding a motorcycle; this will prevent allergens from entering your nose and mouth.
  6. Air out your clothes every time you come home.
