    I mean you can buy the paper masks or you can get balms to go in your nose to try and repel pollunants or nasal sprays.

    Basically any mask would help, but you can also get things like balms you rub around your nose to trap pollen and reduce irritation from hayfever. You can get tablets, nasal sprays, eye drops and other things too so maybe talk about options with a pharmacist.

    Assuming you want a mask over any of these you could try paper ones (like surgeons wear) or maybe a scarf like thing/ balaclava. Things with smaller holes would be better since pollen and other pollutions are small but i'd think as long as you're not using anything like wool it will be alright. If you want to go overboard you can get masks with filters attached for things like painting or anything involving fumes, that would probably be way more than you'd want ot need tough.
