Spring Is Coming!

Spring is coming soon and with that, we look forward to warming weather, we start to have more pollen in the air. In early spring we start seeing tree pollen and in late spring we see grass pollen. Pollen is microscopic and floats in the air. It then can deposit in our nose or on our eyes and cause more symptoms of allergies like itchy eyes, itchy nose, or sneezing. Tree pollen is usually detectable by mid-March and continues until May. If medications like nasal steroids (Flonase, Nasonex, Nasacort), have been stopped in the winter, March 1st is a good time to restart them. This helps prevent the inflammatory response that can occur in the nose with the change in season. Avoidance measures like keeping windows closed and working out later in the day also will help reduce pollen exposure.
