Whenever I was pregnant I never needed to worry about my allergies. I have no clue scientifically how they disappeared, but they did and it was awesome.
Well, this year I am not pregnant and I’ve suffered a bit this sneezin’ season.
I actually live in one of the top 10 cities that will experience the worst allergies this year. What luck!
Here are the 10 worst cities, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America:
- Jacksonville, MS
- Louisville, KY
- Oklahoma, OK
- Memphis, TN
- Knoxville, TN
- McAllen, TX
- Wichita, KS
- Dayton, OH
- Providence, RI (Where I live!)
- Richmond, VA
The pollen and the dust are what get me. The pollen, specifically, finds me even if I’m inside. I get watery eyes, an itchy throat and lots of sneezing.
Obviously, having tissues on hand always helps. I literally have boxes of Scotties tissues in each bathroom, each kids’ room, my car and my desk at work. It’s safe to say I’m prepared!
The itchy watery eyes and the stuffy nose are definitely the absolute worst – but Scotties Facial Tissues offers 3-ply or 3-ply with aloe extra strength tissues to give you the comfort you need. Heaven knows I don’t want to walk around in the middle of summer looking like Rudolph from an itchy nose.
Besides being a soft, reliable tissue, I love that Scotties cares about the environment. Did you know for every tree that Scotties uses to create its products, they will plant three more trees in its place?
In the past 50 years, J. D. Irving, Limited has planted over 927 million trees. That’s pretty awesome.
Scotties products are always recyclable, non-toxic, fragrance free and hypoallergenic. The perfect tissue for little faces.
In addition to arming your family with tissues like Scotties, there are some great allergy-fighting tricks out there that you may not have tried.
- Wear sunglasses to keep pollen out of your eyes.
- Adjust home humidity to control mold – Use a dehumidifier or air conditioner to keep your home humidity close to 50 percent.
- Clean indoor trouble spots well – Windows, curtains and blinds are the preferred hiding places for dust and mold.
- Control irritants along with allergens – Perfumes, hair sprays, disinfectants and air fresheners can also set off an allergy attack.
