PhysicianOne Urgent Care warns a severe spring allergy season is coming and suggests tips on easing symptoms this season.
The spring allergy season is typically recognized as running from May through July.
Earmarked by puffy, watery eyes, stuffy noses, sore throats, and increased sneezing, allergy attacks are the body’s way of managing an overload of pollens or other seasonal abnormalities in the air. Experts blame El Niño for a mild winter and an especially warm March, which creates the perfect conditions for increased tree pollination and greater allergens this spring. According to Accuweather.com, the allergy seasons for Connecticut and New York will be at their peak in early May.
Doctors say discomfort can be kept at bay by exercising caution this spring. Avoid coming into contact with excessive amounts of pollen by staying indoors on dry, breezy, or warm days, as these conditions are more likely to create higher pollen counts.
Additionally, those who know they are prone to allergies should begin taking medications before coming into contact with pollen. Preventative action can help avoid a more serious sickness—as the body’s immune system will not be weakened or caused to go into “overdrive” to fight back against the pollens.
Controlling air quality inside of the home and understanding which pollens and allergens cause your body to react negatively can also help allergy sufferers survive the next several months.
PhysicianOne Urgent Care is pleased to offer support and services to those suffering spring allergies through assessment and medical intervention, if necessary.
