An indoor air purifier can help manage your symptoms, but make sure to do your research before you buy. Some types of air purifiers can actually make your allergies worse — in particular, models that release ozone (a common allergen) or rely on negative ionic filters (which “clean” air by causing particulate matter to stick to furniture, walls, and every other exposed surface). Most experts instead recommend air purifiers that use HEPA filters, which are able to trap the dander and pollen that many people are sensitive to. For specific product suggestions, take a look at our review of Best Air Purifiers.

Mometasone furoate increased chromosomal aberrations in an in vitro Chinese hamster ovary-cell assay, but did not increase chromosomal aberrations in an in vitro Chinese hamster lung cell assay. Mometasone furoate was not mutagenic in the Ames test or mouse- lymphoma assay, and was not clastogenic in an in vivo mouse micronucleus assay and a rat bone marrow chromosomal aberration assay or a mouse male germ -cell chromosomal aberration assay. Mometasone furoate also did not induce unscheduled DNA synthesis in vivo in rat hepatocytes.
