Keeping Your Outdoor Allergies Under Control While Vaping

We’re deep into the heart of allergy season, which means that millions of sufferers are dreading going outside.  Pollen is everywhere right now, causing allergy sufferers to experience symptoms like scratchy throats, itchy eyes and runny noses.  

If you’re a vaper who tends to enjoy their hobby outside, this time of year can be a serious nightmare.  Luckily, we’re here to help. We’re gonna provide you with some tips that can help you get through this season relatively unscathed.

Consider Vaping Indoors

First of all, you probably know that during allergy season, it’s best to stay indoors as much as possible if you get symptoms.  So, if you can, try to vape inside. Many vapers are hesitant to do this because they don’t want their house to be filled with vapor.  But, unlike cigarette smoke, vapor doesn’t linger in the air, nor does it cling to clothes and upholstery.

If you really don’t want vapor in your home, you can always blow into a thick piece of fabric like a sweater, your pillowcase or a towel.  The vapor will simply absorb into the material rather than getting dispersed into the air.

Consider Keeping the Windows Closed

It’s also wise to keep your windows closed as pollen can easily travel from the outdoors into your home through those screens.  If you tend to vape out the window, follow the advice above to keep vapor from filling up your room.

Take Those Allergy Meds

Of course, the most important thing to do if you suffer from allergies is to take an allergy medication.  There are plenty of over-the-counter options available, but if you feel like they don’t work, consider seeing an allergist for a stronger prescription medication.

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated during allergy season is incredibly important as your immune system strongly relies on your body having enough water.  Some particularly heavy vapers find that their habit can make them feel a little dehydrated from time to time, so consider drinking more water than usual during these spring months.

Clean Your Mouthpiece

As you know, pollen gets everywhere during the spring months, including the mouthpiece of your mod.  And, if your mouthpiece has particles of pollen inside of it, you’re going to be inhaling those when you go to take a hit, causing your symptoms to get worse.  So, each day, consider rinsing out your mouthpiece to avoid worsening your symptoms.

Don’t Leave Your Setup Outside

Again, because pollen can find its way into any crevice, leaving your setup outdoors during allergy season is a bad idea.  Small amounts of pollen can collect in your tank, meaning that you’re basically vaping pollen-infused vape juice. Needless to say, this won’t help your symptoms at all.  

Make a point to keep your kit inside as much as possible.  Even leaving it in the car can cause pollen to accumulate as pollen can find its way through the cracks of your car doors.

Allergy Vaping Sufferers, There’s Hope for You Yet!

For those who suffer from allergies, vaping outdoors during the springtime can lead to all kinds of unwanted symptoms.  Thankfully, there are some easy ways to ensure that you continue enjoying your vaping life without feeling overwhelmed by watery eyes and a stuffy nose.  Follow these tips for a glorious vaping experience all season long.
