Causes Of Allergies In Fall
Ragweed is one of the biggest sources of trouble in the fall for people who struggle with allergies. Even if it doesn’t grow in your area, the pollen it releases can travel for hundreds of miles on the wind. Ragweed is a common, soft-stemmed weed with 17 different species. Despite these differences, the one thing that all these species of ragweed have in common is that they produce profuse amounts of pollen.
Mold is another seasonal allergy trigger. Mold prefers wet environments, but unlike the mold that grows inside houses in basements or bathrooms, mold spores prefer wet areas outside such as damp piles of leaves. When doing fall yard work, be careful to immediately place piles of leaves into garbage bags or trash cans to avoid mold growth.
Ragweed and mold are just two of the many triggers of fall allergies. Whether you know what is causing your allergic reaction or not, we can help. Don’t continue to suffer with allergies and the negative impact they have on your daily life. Call The Allergy and Asthma Center now to schedule an evaluation.
