■ Self-care for hay fever
Hay fever is a disease with nose and eye allergy symptoms, such as sneezing and itchiness. Self-care options include wearing a mask and glasses when going outside, and making an effort to not allow even a little pollen to enter your body, which is the cause of hay fever. When there is a lot of pollen in the air and you are at home, please do not open the windows. When going out, avoid wearing a coat that pollen will stick to easily. After coming home, brush off clothing that has pollen stuck to it, and be sure to wash your face and gargle. Light exercise is said to ease hay fever symptoms. In addition, stress, lack of sleep, and excessive drinking, etc. can cause hay fever to worsen, so please take care. If even slight symptoms occur, make an effort to do some form of countermeasures, such as seeking treatment at a nearby medical institution.
