Allergy Tip of the Day: Fall Allergy Tips
Windy days can mean heightened allergy symptoms because wind can carry the pollen from ragweed, grasses and trees up to 100 miles from its source.
Know what you are allergic to and avoid it if you can.
Take your allergy medication before you head outdoors.
Don’t stop your medications until after the first couple of hard freezes. Hard freezes can happen at different times depending on geographical location. A killing freeze at a higher altitude may not have any effect on lower altitude plants.
If your symptoms continue into winter, see your allergist to determine other triggers that may be affecting you.
