How do I manage my environmental allergies on a daily basis?

The best way to manage your environmental allergies on a daily basis is to avoid allergens. For example, if you are allergic to dust mites, wash bed sheets in hot water and use dust mite covers on pillows and mattresses. If you are allergic to pet dander, vacuum regularly and consider keeping the pet outdoors. Nasal irrigation can also help you cope with your symptoms. Additionally, take allergy medicine as directed by your doctor.
