How to manage your allergies at work?
It’s around that time of the year where people struggle with allergies. You have itching in the mouth, swelling in your eyes, and sneezing every few minutes. The symptoms of allergies greatly affect the productivity of workers. Because it isn’t ideal to miss work every time your allergies act up, it’s important to know how to manage them.
Ways to Manage your Allergies at Work
Before learning how to manage your allergies, you need to know what triggers them. Go to your doctor and get tested for what allergens cause your symptoms. After receiving your diagnosis, you can try avoiding the different allergens that give you reactions.
Adjust your Environment
Some objects in your workplace can affect your allergies. For example, pillows and cushions can attract dust mites so you should avoid bringing them. If you own a carpet in your office, it is recommended that you remove it as well.
Turning the air conditioner on can give proper ventilation to your office, allowing allergens to clear out. If this is not ideal, you can also purchase a portable filter for your space.
Have the Right Medication
Has there ever been a moment where you dozed off during a meeting or lost concentration while working? Many allergy medications have side effects that can make you feel tired and drowsy. This may be the case if you're using systemic medications to treat all the symptoms at once. Try tackling each of your symptoms individually and this will help in decreasing side effects.
