How to Exercise If You Have Allergies
These tips can help you reduce your exposure to seasonal allergies when you exercise outdoors:
Avoid exercising in the morning between 5 and 10 a.m., when plants produce the most pollen. Pollen levels are lower in the afternoon and early evening.
Avoid exercising outside on windy days. Pollens and mold spores are likely to be swept into the air.
Wear glasses or sunglasses and a surgical mask if your symptoms are severe.
Take a shower and wash your hair after exercising. Rinse your eyes with cool water.
