The only downside of the warm, spring-like seasons is that allergy symptoms also flare up. In Spain, around 14 million people suffer from an allergy and half of this number, i.e. 7 million people, are allergic to pollen. Although the symptoms of spring allergies are not serious, they are extremely annoying and affect the quality of life of those who suffer from them.
Fortunately, there are many remedies to keep allergies, symptoms and other related discomforts at bay. In this article we tell you about 4 things you can do to help you cope with your allergies.
4 things you can do to keep your allergy at bay
1. Recognise your allergy symptoms.
Knowing which allergies and symptoms you suffer from is essential to treat them. Sneezing, eye irritation, nasal congestion and watery nasal discharge are most common. You may also have a dry cough, an itchy throat and a very tired body. If you suffer from any of these symptoms and do not know if you are allergic to something, we recommend that you see a specialist.
2. Keep your surroundings clean.
The best attack is a good defence, and this is true even with seasonal allergy symptoms. There’s nothing like being cautious. Keeping your home clean, vacuuming regularly and using anti-mite materials for pillows and sheets will help considerably. We also recommend washing everything in hot water to kill germs.
3. Avoid contact with allergens.
If you are allergic to pollen, a day out in the park may not be the best idea in the world. Just as it is not the best idea to eat something that contains traces of gluten if you have coeliac disease. Knowing how to take care of yourself is important, so it’s best to do activities that avoid contact with allergens and wear protective goggles, masks or hats.
4. Use allergen-free utensils.
Investing in kitchen utensils that are free of allergens and toxins is highly recommended. Kuoko has specialised in creating just such kitchen utensils and accessories. Not only are they easy to clean and good for your health, because they cannot transfer any toxics to your food, but they are made of the best materials for kitchen utensils, such as stoneware ceramics and bamboo wood, and are sustainable and environmentally friendly.

How long does it take for spring allergy symptoms to subside?
Allergy symptoms vary from person to person and from season to season. Generally, they can last from several days to several weeks, and can reach a more severe stage. The one thing we can be sure of is that by following these tips you will get relief relatively quickly and improve your quality of life.
