People who have allergies should take a shower after spending any time outdoors during pollen season. Pollen can collect on your skin and hair, prolonging your exposure and allergic reaction to it.
Also: Be sure to wash your hair to remove pollen, so it won't fall onto your pillow.
Hay fever symptoms include stuffy nose... sneezing. . .and itchy eyes.
The hours between mid- and late-afternoon (when pollen levels are lowest) are the best times for outdoor activities.
Worst offenders: Trees in the spring and grasses in the summer.
