Although the warmer months are perfect for outdoor activities, such as trips to the beach, baseball games and backyard barbecues with family and friends, spring is notorious for wreaking havoc on my allergies thanks to increased pollen levels.
I felt like I tried everything to cure my runny nose, watery eyes and itchy throat. Drugstore medications just made me drowsy and homemade elixirs never did the trick.
Finally, I paid a visit to my doctor who I've been seeing since my family and I moved into town. Dr. Roopenian said that I may want to consider purchasing a humidifier for my home. I had always heard about these machines, but never gave buying one much thought.
After feeling like I had exhausted all other resources, I decided to heed "Dr. Roop's" advice and boy am I glad I did! Dehumidifiers work by removing excess moisture in the air and help keep mildew and dust mites at bay.
My house was built in the early 1900's and certain rooms, like my bedroom have a musty scent to them, which Dr. Roopenian said was contributing to my allergies. Every morning and during the night, I'd wake up in a coughing fit. My wife was having trouble sleeping, which is another reason I decided to take action.
After a couple days of leaving the humidifier in our bedroom, I noticed I was waking up and coughing less, which meant my allergies were finally coming under control. And within a week, my wife and I began to notice a difference.
I now can come into my house and know that my allergies won't take over my life and disrupt me when I am catching up on much needed sleep!
