Spring is here, and new life is all around us. But for the 20 million Americans who suffer from seasonal allergies, spring also brings itchy eyes, runny noses, nasal congestion, and constant sneezing. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, contact your Corpus Christi allergy specialist. In the meantime, here is a little info on some common springtime allergens:

Tree pollen
Tree pollen can begin to affect allergy sufferers as early as February, and as late as the middle of the summer months in some cases. Tree pollen is one of the most common allergens that affects Americans every year. Luckily, there are many resources online to track tree pollen counts in your area. This can help you plan accordingly when the pollen counts are high. If you suffer from allergies, it is best to stay indoor when counts are high if at all possible.

Mold spores
Mold spores are another common allergen that begins to pop up as spring rolls around. Molds live everywhere, indoors and out. This makes it extremely difficult to hide from mold allergies. If you suspect a mold allergy, it is best to get tested by your Corpus Christi allergy specialist. We can help you pinpoint the source of the allergens so you can work to avoid them.

Grass and weed pollen
Pollen from grass and weeds usually starts later in the year than tree pollen. This is why many people who suffer from both tree and grass/weed pollen allergies feel like the spring allergy season lasts so long! As with tree pollen, there are many resources available online to track the grass and weed pollen counts in your area.

Don’t let your seasonal allergies keep you down. We can help you identify the specific allergens that are causing problems, and create a personalized treatment plan to help overcome the itching, congestion, and other symptoms.
