Over 60 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, allergies are the fifth leading chronic disease, and autumn is the most difficult season of all for allergy sufferers.
Along with ragweed, there are many other weeds that bloom and cause us to suffer allergy symptoms. Outdoor molds are another large cause of allergies. Mold spores are common in the soil and on fallen leaves. Mold spores rise into the air during the warmest parts of the day, and then fall back to the ground during the evening and nighttime hours.
Symptoms of seasonal allergies:
- Runny nose
- Itchy & watery eyes
How to protect yourself from allergens:
- Shower frequently
- Launder your clothes frequently
- Vacuum your house frequently
- Avoid being outdoors for long durations on windy days
- Rake your yard to free it of leaf cover & clean your gutters
