Helpful Workout Tips

Feb 28, 2019 02:00AM

Before and After:

  • Use a nasal saline spray beforehand
  • Change clothes and shower after outdoor exercise; wash workout clothing exposed to pollens.

Consider Wearing:

  • Wraparound sunglasses to avoid allergens getting into eyes
  • A breathable mask to filter allergens during outdoor activity

Avoid Exercising:

  • In the morning when pollen and mold counts are highest
  • When it’s warm, dry or windy outside
  • On busy roads where exhaust fumes can irritate bronchial and nasal passages
  • When tired, sick or under significant stress; all three states prompt the immune system to react more severely to allergens


  • Don’t exercise for at least two hours after an allergy shot to avoid significant side effects.
