In brief: Avoidance and shots

We use three basic methods for allergy treatment: avoidance, medications and shots.
Take away medications, and you are left with avoidance (stay inside....Yuck!) and shots, also called immunotherapy.

In brief: Yes

Stay inside with your air conditioner running (with a clean, high-efficiency filter) and windows/doors closed.
Try to specifically avoid going outside in the early morning hours (when there is more pollen around), and make sure that when in a car you drive with the windows closed and the air conditioner on (so the air is filtered).
