In brief: Allergic rhinitis

Staying inside the house during pollen season seems like the best answer. But that's not practical.
So , in addition to wearing a mask, do not forget to clean your outer clothes, accessories and shoes before getting back in your house to prevent pollen from being trapped inside the house. Taking a shower will help remove pollen adhering to your skin. Antihistamines plus nasal steroids will help.
