Prevention and Management Tips

Travel Basics Review
<p>Have you ever wondered why certain allergens irritate your system one day, but not another?</p> <p>Imagine your body as an empty bucket that is filled daily with a variety of allergens, such as pollen, dust mites and food. Under normal conditions, as long as the bucket doesn’t overflow, your body will not react. However, factors such as stress, exhaustion, weather changes, infection, chemicals and strong smells can lower the brim of your bucket and cause it to overflow, triggering an allergic reaction.</p> <p>Stay a few steps ahead of potential allergic reactions by being prepared. Do not let your allergies prevent you from travelling or from taking part in activities you enjoy.</p>
