What Do You Know about Winter Allergies?

Weather is a common allergy trigger.  Bad weather also is. You can have water eyes on windy  or stuffy when it rains. The connection between your symptoms and the weather depends on what you’re allergic to.

You can’t prevent an allergy. But if you know you’re allergic, you can take steps to avoid a reaction. Use these tips:

  • Throw out shower curtains, wallpaper, and carpeting that have mold.
  • Wash showers and sinks with a solution containing 5% bleach and a little detergent.
  • To help control dust mites and mold, use a dehumidifier to keep the humidity in your home below 50%.
  • Wash bedding in hot water each week.
  • Use allergy-proof covers on mattresses, pillows, and comforters.

Also, during the winter holidays:

  • Consider an artificial Christmas tree. Live ones can have chemicals and mold on them.
  • Wash dust off of ornaments before you hang them.
  • Buy glass or plastic ornaments rather than fabric, which can collect more dust.
  • If you have a pet allergy and you’ll be visiting people who have cats or dogs, take your allergy medication with you and keep up with your immunotherapy before you go. Bring your own pillow with you, too.

COVID-19 Testing at American Medical Centers

We have tested thousands of patients across the country for COVID-19 since we began testing in early April. Here’s the latest information on our testing services:

Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for travelling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact your local AMC.

Where is AMC testing patients for COVID-19?

We’re currently offering PCR testing to anyone interested either in the clinic or in the comfort of your home/hotel.


If you require numerous employees to be tested on the same day for an upcoming business trip, we can organise an onsite workplace testing session.

How long does it take to get back results?

Results for PCR Testing takes up to 24 hours to process. We also offer rapid testing for those requiring same-day results.

COVID-19 Fit to Fly Travel Certificates available at AMC

Upon request, we may provide a Covid-19 travel certificate for travel purposes, verified by a doctor to provide proof of a negative test result, at no additional cost. When required, a certified Covid-19 travel certificate can be presented to show you’re safe to fly and enter a country.
