For many people, summer is a time for backyard BBQs, beach vacations, and outdoor activities. But if you start sniffling in the summer, you’re not alone. Summer allergy season is almost upon us, too. And if you have seasonal allergies in the summer, the season can be miserable unless you take the right steps to fight back against your allergies. What can you do? Find out now in this blog from Premier Allergy & Asthma.
Unlike spring allergies, which are mostly caused by tree pollen, summer allergies are usually caused by grass pollen. In Central Ohio, grass pollen levels are usually the highest from the middle of May to late June. Ragweed can also be a culprit. Ragweed levels peak in the early autumn, but ragweed can begin blooming as early as late July and August.
If you’re starting to feel the symptoms of summer allergies, there are a few steps that you can take to keep yourself feeling more comfortable, and to reduce your exposure to allergens.
If you have summer allergies, you’ll usually start to experience fewer symptoms around July. Most grasses have stopped producing pollen by this time, though some continue into August. The hot, dry weather also helps reduce allergies, along with the occasional summer rain.
