How to Fight Off Fall Allergies
Autumn can be a brutal time of year if you’re sensitive to mold and ragweed.
And yet these well-known allergens aren’t alone in the misery they can cause – others include hay fever, leaves and more.
Here’s a look at common fall allergies and what you can do to fight back.
News flash: hay fever has nothing to do with hay. It’s simply a term use to describe the symptoms of late summer allergies. Ragweed, a common cause of hay fever, usually starts pollenating in mid-August and may continue to affect you until the first hard freeze.
Lingering Warm Weather
While most people enjoy Indian summer, unseasonably warm Fall temperatures can make hay fever symptoms last longer. Mold spores also are released into the air as humidity rises or when the weather is dry and windy.
For allergy sufferers, the simple act of raking leaves can send pollen and mold into the air thereby worsening your symptoms. If you must rake, get yourself a good allergy mask.
Kids are often exposed to classroom irritants and allergy triggers. These can include chalk dust and classroom pets. Students with food allergies may be exposed to allergens in the lunchroom while kids with exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) may experience attacks during recess or gym class.
