Pollen and Allergies

Grasses, trees, and flowers produce pollen from spring to fall

It’s no secret that grasses, trees, and flowers produce pollen from spring to fall. Here’s their tentative schedule: Grass pollen (March to October), ragweed pollen (July to November), tree pollen (January to June), and weed pollen (April to November). The timetable varies depending on where you live.

Plan your treatment in advance

Waiting until allergens are in the air is a losing strategy in the allergy war. Once spring pollens — typically from oak, elm, birch, poplar, or maple trees — float through the air and reach your nose, the body can overreact.

Not taking medication early enough…
start taking medications a few weeks before allergy season starts

Bringing allergens into your home
when you’re outside, pollen sticks to your clothes, hair and skin
    it’s also important to keep your windows closed in your home              and car

Ignoring your symptoms
 Don’t ignore symptoms
    Allergies, common in both the spring and the fall, occur about            the same time each year
    talk with your doctor

Spending time outdoors when pollen counts are high
stay inside as much as possible
    check the local pollen levels 

Failure to use a nasal spray
use nasal steroid sprays instead of  nasal decongestant sprays

Not consulting with a physician about the potential benefits of               prescription medication
if your symptoms are severe, your doctor can prescribe medications that offer better relief the over the counter drugs
