What can be done at home to control hay fever symptoms?

If hay fever is caused by pollen, staying inside with the doors and windows closed on high-pollen days may help to control symptoms. If this is not possible, staying away from grassy areas and wearing sunglasses can reduce direct contact with pollen. In cases where symptoms are not caused by pollen, measures could include dusting regularly, avoiding cigarette smoke, keeping animals outside and eliminating household mold.
