Must Have Allergy Control Products

After taking an extended trip, I have come to the conclusion that:

  •  There really is no place like home
  •  There really are some must-have allergy control products.  These are the allergy control products I just can’t do without.
Must-Have Allergy Control Product #1 Allergen Wash

I was fortunate that one of the stops on my multi-state trip was my mother’s home.  I knew I could depend on her to have a bottle of Allergen Wash.  Not only could I wash out all the dust, dirt, and grime but I could get rid of the allergens also.

You might not think of allergens in the laundry, but on this extended road trip, I didn’t get many opportunities to do laundry and I knew that my clothing was collecting pollens because some of it was damp (did I mention that this trip included spending an afternoon hauling the contents of a Budget moving truck up a flight of stairs in 100-degree weather?) it was ripe for molds and dust mites.  It was great to see Mom and it was great to see her washer and dryer and that bottle of Allergen Wash.

Must-Have Allergy Control Product #2 Allergy Bedding

It was also nice to sleep on a bed that was completely protected in zippered dust mite-proof mattress covers and pillow covers.  Of the many places I slept on this trip, only two of them were places where the beds were completely covered.

It makes such a difference in how I feel in the morning when I get up.  Covers = Cheryl which is a bright ray of sunshine.  No Covers = Cheryl that can’t see straight, can’t think straight, and is a growly, crabby bear.  I don’t try to hide it…I know how I am!

Must-Have Allergy Control Product #3 – ADMS Spray

This brings me to the third allergy control product I can’t live without……my bottle of ADMS Spray.

The ADMS Spray is a lifesaver when you are going to be staying where you can’t control your environment.

As I have written before, a quick spray on the air conditioner, bedding, and carpeting and most hotel rooms can have a drastic reduction in the level of allergens waiting to greet you.  I didn’t have a room that gave me problems on the entire trip!

It is certainly good to see the countryside, but it is even better to be home.  In your own bed.  In your own bedroom that has no carpeting.  With your Austin Air HealthMate humming you softly to sleep.

Dealing With Cat Allergies

Allergies are the most widespread chronic condition in the world and 4 out of 5 people who are allergic to animals are allergic to cats. Some research shows about a third of those that suffer from cat allergies live with at least one cat.

Now cats are not the only animal that causes allergies. Many people can be allergic to dogs, rabbits, hamsters, mice, gerbils, monkeys, hate cat allergies but love your cathorses and pretty much any other furry animal. Some people even think they are allergic to their fish when in reality they are allergic to the algae growing in the fish tank.

For years the doctor’s first and best solution was to tell the patient to find their furry pet a new home. Today people will make that the last thing they will consider. After all it’s hard to get rid of a family member and our pets are part of the family. People are looking for another solution.

allerpet controls cat allergiesFirst of all let me say, even if you get rid of the cat you will still have cat allergens all over the house. Pet dander is very light and floats around sticking to everything it comes in contact with including the walls, carpet, furniture, drapes, blinds, light fixtures and ac systems. We have had customers with cat allergies who moved into a home that had been pet-free for at least a year and they still had allergic reactions.

Keeping your cat can be done in most cases however for some people with severe allergies this is not an option. The most important thing remove cat allergies with alleroetyou need to do is reduce and eliminate anything that collects the cat’s dander.  We offer a complete guide on How to Deal with Cat Allergies.

Eye Allergies – The Eyes Have It!

Eye allergies can affect anyone. Summertime is a great time of year for most people. It’s so much warmer than it was a few months back, flowers are blooming, the kids are out of school.  Summer is a time for picnics and pools. For those that suffer from allergies, it can mean a lot of different symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and watery and itchy eyes.

For many, their eyes react to allergens; mold, pollen, dust, pet dander, dust mites, grass and more. These allergens get in the eyes and inflame the tissue causing watery and itchy eyes. In many cases people take an antihistamine for their eye allergies thinking it will help. These drugs can make matters worse by making the eyes dryer.

If you are one of these people,  here are a few things that can help you deal with eye allergies.

  • Use OTC eye drops that add moisture. I use Gentel Gel Drops
  • Don’t rub your eyes
  • Keep your hands clean
  • Reduce contact wear time if possible
  • Clean your contacts often
  • Wear sunglasses to block the sun and the wind
  • Wash your bedding in hot water and anti allergen detergent to remove allergens

Eye allergies (allergic conjunctivitis) are a pain but you don’t need to let them ruin your summer.
