Grab The Kleenex!
Ragweed season, for allergy suffers, can be on of the most dreaded times of the year. Symptoms can be mild to severe and may include, but are not limited to, sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, sinus drainage, and congestion. Windy days can contribute to a higher pollen concentration because pollen will travel for 500 miles.
Be sure and discuss your allergy symptoms with your doctor and the options of treatment that are available. Whether it is prescribed anti-histamines, starting allergy treatment, or any other suggestions that can give you relief during the season.
Pollens generally peak after the 15th of September, they will start to decline around October 1st, but will remain in the air until our first freeze.
Keep watch for other helpful hints, and remember, keep the Kleenex handy.
