As the Temperature Rises, So Do the Mold and Pollen Counts

Posted on March 25 2014

As winter comes to an end, allergy season springs into action for many Americans. As the temperatures start to rise, the snow starts melting and trees and flowers begin budding… and the mold and pollen counts begin to rise with the warming temperatures. For many Americans (of all ages) this means the dreaded itchy watery eyes, sneezing, and runny noses that can go on for months at a time.   Thankfully there are some products and techniques that can be used to help get allergy sufferers through the season with less distress.   For starters, there are some great allergy medications available on the market. If you’re unsure about what one is best for you, your healthcare provider should be able to make some recommendations. They may even suggest a combination of treatments, such as taking an oral antihistamine (like Benadryl Allergy, Claritin, or Allegra Allergy), using nasal sprays (like the Zicam Seasonal Allergy Relief Nasal Spray) to cleanse the nasal passages of dust, pollen, and other allergens, using nasal rinses (like a netti-pot or the Neilmed Sinugator Cordless Nasal Wash System), or even allergy vaccinations.   Monitoring the mold and pollen counts and staying indoors when they are high can also help. In addition, when coming indoors it’s always a good idea for allergy sufferers to take a shower, wash their hair, and wash their clothing to wash away all the pollen that they can collect. When doing outdoor chores, like racking leaves or mowing the lawn, wearing a face mask can also help cut down on the severity of allergy attacks.   Talking with your healthcare provider and implementing some of these tips can help alleviate some of the distress caused by seasonal allergies; helping allergy suffers be able to enjoy the warmer weather just like everyone else.
