For a start don't use an anti-histamine bought outside of Spain, they are targeted to different

trees! The medication available locally is prepared for our indigenous environment (olives etc. etc.) so
is far more effective. Speak to your local chemist and they will advise you. If you have acute symptoms
or your breathing is affected contact your doctor.
On the days where the UV index and/or pollen count is high use a mask outdoors.
When ventilating the house do so before 08:30 hours and after 22:00 hours. If you have fly screens
spray them with hair spray as this will collect a lot of the allergens and you can vac monthly.
Use a water spray indoors twice daily to keep the dust from circulating.
Join the Gym or Toning Tables for 3 months and get an extra month free.

size beam and new matting.
