Battling Spring Allergies

Spring is a beautiful, colorful and happy season but for some people is the time of the year to battle allergies. The biggest spring allergy trigger is pollen. Trees are known to cause spring allergies as the pollen produced by them can traveled far by the spring breeze. Some types of trees are common triggers of hay fever in spring such as oak, maple, red cedar, elm, birch, cypress, and walnut, among others.  Grass and weed also release tiny grains into the air and can cause allergic reactions. The most common symptoms of spring allergies are sneezing, sniffling, congestion, and itching.

You’ll get some relief from spring allergy symptoms on rainy or cloudy days, or when there’s no wind to make the pollen airborne. However, when the weather is warm and dry (just like most people want), and especially when the wind picks up, allergies are likely to become worse.

The immune system mistakenly sees the pollen as a danger and releases antibodies that attack the allergens. That leads to the release of chemicals called histamines into the blood. Histamines trigger the runny nose, itchy eyes, and other symptoms that are all too familiar if you have allergies.

Getting relief from spring allergies is actually quite simple. Just keep your doors and windows closed, use allergy filters on your air conditioning unit, wash your clothes and take a shower after you’ve been exposed to pollen and mold spores. You may also avoid doing yard work or exercising outdoors on days when pollen counts are high, such as sunny and breezy days.
