Checkup: Winter Allergies

What it is
Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

Allergic reactions occur when your immune system overreacts to normally harmless substances, such as dust mites, pet dander, mold and cockroach droppings. Most people think allergies only act up in the spring, but the winter can be just as difficult because it's harder to avoid allergens when you're stuck indoors.


To ward off the allergen, your body produces histamines, which in turn cause problems in the upper respiratory tract (stuffy nose; sneezing; itchy, watery eyes and nose) and lower respiratory tract (coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath).


A physician can conduct pulmonary function testing and allergy skin tests to reveal your specific allergic triggers.

Talk to your doctor if:

-You get the same symptoms at the same time every year.
-You have a cold that lasts more than two weeks.
-The symptoms improve if you leave your home or town for a long period of time.
-You are wheezing or find it difficult to draw a full breath.


For upper respiratory inflammations:
• Cortisone nasal spray (such as Flonase or Nasonex)
• Eye drops (such as Emadine or Patanol)
• Nonsedative antihistamines (such as Allegra or Claritin)
• Decongestants (such as Sudafed or Allerest)

For lower respiratory inflammations:
• Albuterol inhalers for fast-acting relief
• Corticosteroid inhalers for persistent problems
• Singulair, an oral medication, for when inhalers aren't enough

If these remedies don't work:
• Immunotherapy (allergy shots) builds up your immunity to allergens.
• Omalizumab (Xolair) injections attack the antibody that causes the allergy, though the drug is new and expensive (up to ,000 a year).

Make your home a safer place:

• Lower the heat and use a dehumidifier to keep humidity below 51 percent.
• Put a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filter on the furnace or use a stand-alone HEPA air purifier.
• Don't install wall-to-wall carpeting, a perpetual trap for allergens. Vacuum rugs often.
• Keep all food covered to discourage cockroaches.
• Clean bathrooms and kitchen often to prevent mold, and check your basement for water.
• Keep litter boxes far away from the air supply for the rest of the house.

In the bedroom:
• Use allergenic covers for pillows, bedding and mattresses.
• Wash bedding weekly at 130°F.
• Don't let your pet sleep in your bedroom.
• Eliminate dust-catching clutter by putting books and magazines in another room or in a closet.

"People think that the winter months are allergy-free. But plenty of allergens are out year-round, and sometimes problems are even more intense in the winter."--Raymond G.
