Spring is in full-force and the sun is back strong, which—for many allergy sufferers—is not always the best news. The worst thing about the sun coming out is not being able to enjoy it because of those annoying allergy symptoms. The sneezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery eyes can all get in the way of your life, making it nearly impossible to comfortably do something as simple as go outside for a walk—much less a hike by the river or playing with the kids at the park.

Ready or Not, Ragweed Season is Here

Think your recent sneezing and runny nose is due to a summer cold, you may want to think again. Hay fever season is here, causing misery for some of the 50 million Americans with allergies. One of the main causes of fall hay fever is ragweed, which comes in 17 varieties and blooms from August to late October or early November.

While warmer temperatures can be enjoyable in the fall , climate change is making the hay fever season last up to three weeks longer. Windy days can also mean heightened allergy symptoms. Wind can carry the small pollen grains from ragweed, grasses and trees up to 100 miles from its source.

To help combat fall allergies:

  • Take medication before symptoms begin
  • Keep car and home windows closed so pollen doesn’t filter indoors
  • Wear a pollen mask (such as a NIOSH rated 95 filter mask) when working outdoors
  • Limit outdoor activities during the morning when the pollen counts are highest
  • Make an appointment with Dr. Sullivan to find relief

Trigger avoidance and allergy medication might provide great hay fever relief for some, but not for all. Dr. Sullivan can provide effective treatment with medications that may go beyond over-the-counter remedies.
