Spring is almost here. And with that comes our spring allergy season. Millions of Americans suffer from allergies each year. However, you do not have to be one of them.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR ALLERGY SEASON
The first step is to know what you’re allergic to. Next, it helps to minimize your exposure to those allergens—whether that means cleaning your home in a certain way to reduce indoor allergens or keeping an eye on your local allergy forecast.
Once you start suffering from seasonal allergy symptoms, figure out which allergy medicine is right for you and start treating as soon as your allergy symptoms start. Taking your medicine before peak allergy season can help alleviate symptoms like nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy nose, sneezing, and itchy, watery eyes.

About Pollen Levels
Pollen levels indicate the amount of pollen in the air. The season and geographic area are the two primary factors that contribute to higher pollen levels. A common misconception is that pollen levels will be almost zero during colder months. Trees actually start producing pollen as early as January in southern states. They also produce such a large volume of pollen that it can increase pollen levels miles away.
Also, be aware that regardless of your outdoor pollen level and allergy report, pollen can still be transported indoors by animals and clothing.
If you are suffering from allergies, come in for an appointment! You don’t have to suffer.
