Read Transcript

And the final allergy we're going to talk about is itchy nose, which so many of you are talking to me about, what's its quick cure? What happens with itchy nose is you scratch your nose a lot and rubbing nose and a lot of people would develop a crease right in the middle of their nose from repeatedly rubbing their nose.

It's called a Transverse Nasal Crease, 5%-10% of my patients have it's. It's like you'll see that little crease there, it's pretty telling when you see it in the doctor's office, so what do you do to prevent this? We want it to wearing a hat, this a great way to prevent pollen from entering your face and your eyes, especially on a windy day.

That actually works. I must say, I love the idea of having mechanical solutions just like blocking stuff from getting I never thought about it but there's an option. It's a pollen blocker. And then you also have hair gel. Why is that an issue? Hair gel, think about it. Put the hair gel on hair and put the moss it's a pollen magnet.

It's the worst thing you can do. In our office we did a study once, we prohibited hair gel for a month and the people that were off hair gel and products felt better and had less pollen going back into their bedroom. Washing wisely at night. Shampoo your hair in the evening. Why? What's going to happen, you're going to reduce all that pollen from being transferred with your pillows and your bedsheet, wake up in the morning and feel refreshed and less allergic.
