Health Tips for May 20

Health Tip: Traveling Despite Asthma and Allergies
Traveling can expose you to new triggers for allergies and asthma, but planning ahead can help you breathe a bit easier while you're away.
The American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology offers these travel suggestions
Pack your asthma and allergy meds in carry-on bags, and keep them in their original containers.
Continue to take your medications on schedule as directed by your doctor.
Prepare for potential problems, such as food allergies.
Keep contact information for your allergist and an emergency contact handy.
If possible, find an allergist at your travel destination.
Health Tip: Stay Inside When Spring Allergens Are at a Peak
Seasonal allergies can cause itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion and sneezing.
The University of Maryland Medical Center suggests these lifestyle changes to ease seasonal allergy symptoms from outdoor allergens
Start your allergy medications a week or two before the season starts.
Don't take a camping trip or go on a hike when pollen counts are high.
Stay away from barns and hay, and try not to mow the grass or rake leaves.
Wear sunglasses to keep pollen out of the eyes.
After spending time outside, take a shower and wash hair, change clothes and rinse out the nasal passages with a salt water rinse.
Close windows and doors during allergy season.
