How to clean dust without suffering from allergies?

I really want to clean my room, but I’m really allergic to dust and if I’m around it, I start sneezing uncontrollably and my throat itches the whole day and even the next. I sometimes even get a low grade fever. I don’t have any masks, either.

    If you don't have masks, then buy some. They're rather inexpensive. If you conveniently live 30 miles from a store that sells them and don't have a car, you can still do this successfully by using a DAMP cloth (not a dry one; not a sopping wet one) to dusting and keep the dust from getting into the air. I'm allergic to dust as well, but I keep a bottle of antihistamine around.

    Do you have a kerchief to put over your nose? Also a Benedryl (diphenhydramine) antihistamine tablet will help.
