    Allergies to almost anything airborne

    How do you prep for someone who is allergic to almost anything airborne? Would it be best to have wood floors so you could sweep but if you have carpet what do you do?

    Local honey. use it to better build immunities to allergies from local flora. I have terrible allergies in my older age and just have to essentially run water through my snout until it clears up enough to sleep.


    I'd think sweeping would be worse than just having dirty floors or a dirt floor.

    I have terrible allergies, particularly ragweed. Sneezing, snot slinging mess is what it is, not to mention a constant headache. I stay medicated this time of the year and allergy medicine ( Over the counter) is part of my stores. I keep the house as clean as I can and wood floors seem to help. When I am outside I am at it's mercy. It was worse when I was younger, it seems to be more manageable as I have aged, either that or the drugs got better.

    I have allergies. Big time. I ripped out the carpet and put down that fake flooring. Laminate, is it? Anyway, things got better. While I am home, anyway.

    Is there anything else you could stock to help? I’m trying to make a list since the hubby is allergic to lots of stuff like dust and bees and pollen.

    Make an appointment to see an Allergist (MD). Medical Technology can help with building your immunity or at least provide relief for the symptoms.

    But I want to stock for a disaster and we cannot get to a doctor for relief.

    My apologies for not being very specific and clear.

    An allergist can actually cure a patient of a particular allergy.

    For example, a person may have an allergic reaction to wasp stings (venom). An allergist will systematically inject small and then increasingly stronger amounts of wasp venom into the patient and over time the patient has a good chance of becoming resistant to wasp venom.
