Your mode of travelling is very important especially if you are already suffering from allergies. If you travel by bus, train or car, be prepared for allergens or irritants that might worsen your symptoms. You must take all measures to stay safe from worsening your allergies while travelling.

If you travel by car and you know that you will be using air conditioning or the heater, air out the car with the air conditioner or running the heat for at least 10 minutes. This will help you get rid of molds and dust mites that might be hidden somewhere in your car and can effect your health while you are on the move. Leave the doors of your car open for sometime to let the allergens escape.

Lengthy distances can also create a problem if you are suffering from asthma or other different allergies. So make sure you keep your windows closed if you plan to travel for a long distance. Outdoor allergens can prove hazardous to your allergies or asthma and can result in severe health issues. If you have pollen or mold allergies, this is especially harmful. You probably already know how dangerous cigarette smoke or outdoor air pollution is. This is just another reason to keep the windows closed. If you travel late evening or early morning, you may also lessen your response to outdoor pollution.

Although air travel seems safe and hygienic as you are not exposed to any outdoor or indoor pollution, it can still result in health hazards. This is especially true if you suffer from food allergies. It is really difficult to find out the ingredients in the food that you are provided in an air flight. If you are known to have severe allergic reactions to certain food types, always have your epinephrine handy. Moreover, you will always experience very dry air on a place therefore it is advisable to delay traveling if you have sinusitis or an ear infection.

If you are planning a cruise, make sure you have all the details related to health and safety on the ship. You must also be particular about the food provided if you are allergy sensitive with certain food ingredients. Moreover, anaphylactic type reactions are the most difficult ones to treat at sea. Again, you must have your epinephrine handy. You can also have a negative affect on your asthma or allergies of the different environment and climate conditions at different stops. If you have a stop at damp, cold climates, prepare for dust mites and indoor molds and get ready with allergen relief products.

Allergen control solutions can be your pal on travels to save you from different allergies and asthma attacks. Make sure you follow proper measures to keep yourself healthy during travel.

PS: Do you know that Beach and Mountains are the best bets for allergy sufferers any time of year. Ocean breezes are generally free of allergens, and dust mites don’t thrive at elevations above 2,500 feet. Mold spores are killed by snow.
