Yes: It is good that you exercise. Keep up the exercise as tolerated. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Treatment options...: 1) identify your allergens (the things you are allergic to) - often done by an allergist. 2) avoid the things that you are allergic to when possible. 3) take medications to reduce the symptoms of hay fever (like antihistamines). 4) see an allergist for immunotherapy ("allergy shots") to build up you're immune system's tolerance for the allergens.
