Sneezing All the Time? Top Reasons Why Your Allergies Aren't Going Away

Constantly feeling as if you have to sneeze is not only aggravating, but it will also spread your germs wherever you go. Even if you are not sick yourself, you can still give the flu to your family, friends, and coworkers. Here is a look at a few different reasons why you might be dealing with allergies that won't go away.

Allergens Are Trapped in Your Home

Keeping your home extremely clean is an absolute necessity if anyone in your family suffers from allergies. As soon as allergy season begins, you should clean your floors, linens, sinks, showers, curtains, and counters at least twice a month. Instead of using harsh chemical cleaners, most allergens and toxins can easily be eradicated with a mixture of vinegar and warm water. Using chemical-based cleaners or bleach could make your allergies worse.

Bad Hygiene Practices

There is a very good reason why so many healthcare professionals wash their hands dozens of times a day. Every time that you shake hands, take off your jacket, or close a door, germs and irritants are going to cling to your hands. When those allergens are not removed, you will eventually transfer them from your hands to your face on accident. Keeping a bottle of hand sanitizer with you at all times is an excellent way to kill these pathogens when you are not near a sink.

You Have the Wrong Medication

Allergies are often caused by dozens of different variables, and a single form of generic medication isn't going to work for everyone. Even if your current medication is somewhat effective, you might be able to supplement it with a nasal spray or an aerosol mask. Before combining any allergy medications, though, you must first speak with your doctor to make sure that the treatments will not negatively interact with one another. A negative effect could be trouble breathing or other symptoms of basic allergic reactions. After speaking with your doctor, make sure that you monitor your physical status as you take the medications together to make sure that it is working properly for you.

Unsanitary Pets

No matter how well you clean your home, your pet might be bringing new allergens inside every single day. This is especially common among dogs and cats that have long fur where mites and dander can become trapped. In addition to washing them regularly, you might also want to visit a pet groomer two or three times a year so that they can trim their fur, cut their nails, and clean their teeth.

If none of these tips have helped, then you should ask your doctor about comprehensive testing. In rare cases, chronic sneezing can be caused by more severe issues such as damaged facial nerves or immune disorders.

Hi, Hannah! Welcome and thank you for your recent contributions in the OMTimes community. In looking over this first one on sneezing,it is written well, but falls a little below our size requested. We do ask that articles be at least 500 words, and this comes in at around 460. 

We also ask that any embedded links you have in the article be included as references rather than be embedded. This way, readers know up front what they are linking to, and can check those sources further if they wish. 

Your article also needs to have your bio paragraph added to it, please. We ask that everyone provide it with each contribution. It needs to be at approximately 60 words, and include a link to your website or other place where readers may read more or connect with you. 

Please let me know once you have revised this, and I would be happy to reconsider it to be forwarded to the publishers. Thank you very much and Happy New Year ~ Blessings!
