Fall is here, which means that for much of the country, there are only a few weeks left to fit in those weekend family getaways to the mountains or the beach. However, for many, fall can be the worst time for allergy symptoms. If you're taking your family on a camping trip to enjoy the beautiful weather, follow a few tips to keep sneezing and itching to a minimum.
Before you start your trip, air out all of your equipment and check for mold in your tent or trailer. Bring all ointments and medications just in case. There will likely be allergens like ragweed around your campsite.
If you plan on building a campfire and someone in your party has asthma, keep him far away from the fire, as the smoke can exacerbate symptoms.
One of the most important things to keep in mind while camping is what you'll be bringing home with you. Be sure to wash tents, clothes and luggage, and don't leave anyunwashed items lying around the house.
For the worst fall allergies, your family may benefit from a professional-grade air purifier like those we carry at FreshAirPro. Among our top-selling models is the IQAir HealthPro Plus. Unlike other purifiers that can only filter particles .3 microns in size or larger, the HealthPro Plus has the ability to tackle particles as small as .003 microns in size for the best allergy relief available.
