Colorado Springs Pollen Report For June 25, 2019
Allergy Tip of the Day: Allergy Shots
Pollen Forecast: Expect pollen and mold levels to remain where they are through the rest of the week. Stray rain showers may clear the air for a bit afterward, but they won’t affect the overall levels.
Did You Know?: Allergy Shots
Allergy shots are a treatment aimed at building up your tolerance to the substances that trigger your allergy symptoms. Allergy shots work like a vaccine. Your body begins to respond to the injected amounts of an allergen by developing resistance and tolerance to it. While most people may experience a permanent reduction of their allergy symptoms, others may not respond to allergy shots. An allergist can test you for allergies and tell you if allergy shots are right for you. Reactions are possible, but your allergist is trained to watch for them and his or her staff is trained to identify and treat them.
