Be greater than your allergies
COMMON ALLERGY TRIGGERS
People are affected by all kinds of allergens. Some of us need to avoid pollen and dust; others can’t be around dogs or cats. But no matter what you’re allergic to, allergy symptoms can interfere with daily activities and reduce your quality of life.

It’s important to factor in pollen counts when planning outdoor activities. Since pollen peaks anywhere between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m., it may be best to consider switching your early morning routine for an early evening one to help minimize exposure to allergens.1
DON’T THROW CAUTION TO THE WIND
Factor in the weather when choosing when you exercise.
The right gear is essential when working out with allergies. To help prevent itchy, watery eyes when outdoors, wear glasses that wrap around your head. It’s an easy way to stay protected while on the go. A hat is a great choice too. Not only does it help keep allergens out of your hair, but it also reduces the amount of pollen you can transfer to other things like furniture, bedding, or clothing.3
KEEP IT OUTSIDE
To help avoid transporting pollen inside your home, remove your shoes outside. Toss the clothes you just wore in the washer, and take a shower right away. Showering removes built-up pollen and additional particles from your skin and hair.
USE FLONASE DAILY
It never hurts to stay proactive. Make FLONASE a part of your daily routine when experiencing allergy symptoms. Taking FLONASE once a day can help you achieve more complete allergy relief.*
You can’t see them or smell them, but airborne allergens—like pollen, dust, pet dander, and mold—are the source of more allergic reactions than any other type of allergen worldwide. In the United States alone, close to 30 million Americans struggle with allergic rhinitis,4 the reaction to the airborne allergens noted above, with symptoms including nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, itchy nose, and itchy, watery eyes.5
Use as directed.
*vs single-ingredient antihistamines that do not treat nasal congestion.
Prior to starting physical activity outdoors, consult with an allergist or your primary care doctor. It could help you get an idea of what activities you should and should not do to help keep your allergies under control.
