2. Plan for Outdoor Irritants
You might also want to consider whether or not outdoor irritants play a role in your sinus symptoms. For example, some people get sinus infections due to the smog that is in the air. If you are having an allergic reaction to the pollution outside, it can cause sinus symptoms. There isn’t much you can do to eliminate it from your life, but you can protect yourself by wearing a mask. Pollen is another common outdoor irritant.
Obviously, there’s not much you can do about eliminating the pollen from your air either, but there are things that you can do to protect yourself when you walk through pollen-infested areas. Wearing a mask is one solution, but many people also take allergy medication that helps to reduce the number of histamines released into the body due to these allergens. This will only work on some types of allergens, so you will want to check the label for details.
