Sleep without allergies
Although it's usually the bit of advice given to you when you start feeling sick, "get some rest" might be a lot easier said than done. It's hard to close puffy eyes and try to ignore your own wheezing and coughing.
Sleep truly can be illusive when you having an allergic reaction. Thankfully, there's still hope. You don't have to stay sleepless and miserable because of your allergies. The first thing you'll need to do however, is eliminate whatever it is you're allergic to. This may require some impromptu spring cleaning.
Using a hypo-allergenic face mask, you'll want to go around your house vacuuming any potential deposits of dust or pollen. Furniture, carpets and curtains should all be included. You can repeat this as often as necessary or invest in a whole house air purifier. Any of the popular models available on Allergybegone.com will keep the humidity level comfortable and filter out most harmful allergens that are likely to make your nights miserable. Another great investment would be hypo-allergenic pillows and bedding.
No one measure is a cure all. If you still find it hard to get a good night's sleep consider other options like nasal decongestants or nasal sprays. Antihistamines work by drying up your runny nose and postnasal drip. The medication does come with some side effects like dizziness and a hangover-like feeling in the morning. Probably not the trade off you want for an allergy free night. Another way to go would be nasal steroid spray. They stop your immune system from overreacting to things you're allergic to. They also take a while to work, but help prevent symptoms when used regularly.
