Allergy Tip of the Day: Ragweed Allergy
Pollen Forecast: More moderate temperatures and low precipitation chances keep pollen and mold levels lower through the week. Grass season is winding down, but we’ll have to deal with those pesky weeds until first freeze.
Did You Know?: Ragweed Allergy
If you are allergic to ragweed pollen, you may experience itching of the tongue, mouth and lips after eating foods like melons, bananas and zucchini due to cross reactivity. This is known as Oral Allergy Syndrome and occurs when the immune system reacts to the proteins in certain foods as they are similar to the proteins in pollens.
