Already Suffering With Allergy Issues?

It looks like the warm sunny weather in February is coming at a price.  People are starting to suffer with spring allergies.

Pollen is one of the most common allergens in the United States. Pollen is an airborne allergen, which is picked up and carried by the wind. Different types of trees, grasses and weeds create pollen, which can cause hay fever, irritate your eyes and skin.

Some doctors encourage their patients with pollen allergies to begin taking their allergy medications on Valentine’s Day each year.  This is to hopefully avoid the inflammation pollen allergies create in the body which leads to itching, coughing, sneezing, runny noses, watery eyes and for others asthma.

Earlier this month our region experienced high tree pollen counts when temperatures reached the 70’s.
