It’s a sad truth that a lot of people suffer from pet allergies. Some believe that hypoallergenic pets are the solution to their dilemma, but these animals are unfortunately a myth. As an alternative, a lot of people decide not to take in a furry friend because of their allergies. This can be such torture for animal lovers that some decide to manage their symptoms instead of giving up on having pets. If you’re one of those people, consider these tips to help manage your pet allergies:
Have a Pet-Free Area
Having pets doesn’t mean that you have to have them everywhere! The best way to manage your symptoms is to have an area that is allergy free. The best place for this may be your bedroom. You can use this space as an escape from pet dander when your symptoms are on overload. You can also protect your bed with AllerEase bedding such as the Ultimate Protection & Comfort Temperature Balancing Zippered Mattress Protector and Hot Water Washable Allergy Protection Zippered Pillow Protectors. Wash these often and this safe space will be your sanctuary from allergens.
Invest in an Air Purifier
Though having a pet-free area is a tremendous way to help manage your pet allergies, you don’t want to be quarantined in your bedroom. Investing in an air purifier can help keep your allergies at bay in the areas where your pets wander free. The most important part of picking an air purifier is to remember that it is an investment. Don’t buy a cheap model and call it a day, because this won’t do your body any favors. Do your research and get an air purifier that will help ease your suffering and improve your health.
Bathe Your Furry Friend
The best way to avoid pet dander is to wash it down the drain! Bathing your furry friend can work miracles in the fight against pet allergens. Washing dogs is more common knowledge than washing cats. Make sure you know the proper way to bathe your cats or kittens before tossing them in the tub!
Pets are too loveable to give up for pesky allergies! What do you do to manage your pet allergies in your home?
