Traveling with Allergies
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.
