Traveling with Allergies

Description: 
When heading out of town, tell your allergies to hit the road by following these simple steps.

1. Get out of town

Consider taking a vacation during the height of the pollen season to a more pollen-free area, such as the beach.

2. Bring your own covers

If you're allergic to dust mites, consider bringing your own hypo-allergenic pillows and covers.

3. Camp with a plan

Avoid camping during high allergen seasons and always pack your medications. Remember to keep medicine out of the reach of children.

4. Choosing the right room

When choosing rooms in a hotel, request a sunny, dry room away from indoor pools and one that is pet-free.

5. Travel with your medicine

Put medicine in your carry-on bags when traveling. Remember, it is best to have original packaging when passing through security.

6. Know when to leave

Outdoor air pollution can make symptoms worse. Consider traveling in the early morning or late evening when air quality is usually better.
