A few useful recommendations for people sensitized to grass pollen :

  • rigorously follow the treatment prescribed by your physician
  • don’t mow the lawn, and do not go near places where the lawn is mown
  • avoid outdoor efforts and activities (sports, physical efforts). Indoor activities are a better option
  • limit the aeration of your home during the pollen season, preferably during or after the rain
  • keep the windows closed when you travel by car
  • during dry and windy weather, wearing glasses is recommended to limit contact between the eyes and the pollen
  • do not dry your linen outside
  • use paper handkerchiefs
  • take a shower and wash your hair before sleeping
