If you suffer from allergies, you're not alone, especially during the summer.

Here's a look at some helpful ways you can tackle them.

If your children have been playing outside, it's a good idea to wash them off and rinse out their hair to get anything, such as pollen, that could trigger an allergic reaction.

You may also want to consider wearing a hat and sunglasses while you're outside to protect from allergens getting on you.

It's also good to change your clothes as soon as you get inside your home so you don't transfer any allergens indoors.

Also, make sure to keep your windows closed.
