Try these tips for allergy relief when you’re on vacation or traveling on business.
Travel Insurance: Check pollen counts at your destination. Pack your own hypoallergenic pillow cover and allergy medicine in a carry-on bag.
No Venting: On road trips, keep the air vent closed. You'll breathe recirculated air, not pollen or pollution.
Smart Car: Take a vacuum to your car. Pollen and dust mites can easily cling to clothing, bringing more allergens into your home.
Cruise Control: If pollen is a problem, plan getaways to escape allergens. Beachside vacations are ideal. Ever considered a cruise?
On The Road Again: Traveling? Pack medications in a carry-on bag. Carry an extra supply in case you need them.
Hotel Security: Control allergens in your hotel room as much as possible. If you can, close your air conditioner vent.
Trip Tip: Don't lose track of medications. If you need to take them on schedule, set your cell phone's alarm clock -- or your watch.
Special Effects: Making hotel arrangements? Ask for a nonsmoking room. It's your best defense for a good night's sleep.
Pillows Matter: If your hotel room has feather pillows, ask for synthetic, hypoallergenic pillows. Or bring your own plastic cover from home.
