Allergy Season May Be Longer Than Usual This Year

Even though the temperatures haven't been feeling very spring-like, the trees are still trying to bloom. That means they're releasing pollen into the air and they could be doing just that for quite some time.

A study shows that the average ragweed pollen season is now 13 to 27 days longer than it was in 1995. The later end of the season is linked to warmer temperatures. Nowadays, there's also more pollen in the air. Because of that, people who never had allergies may actually notice them having some this year.
 
Of course we don't have any control of mother nature but there are some things we can do to make the spring and summer a little more pleasant. Over the next few months, notice how your body is reacting to the weather changes and make sure you seek medical attention if it's a little more than a few sniffles and sneezes.
 
There are a few basic things you can do just to make sure you're not spending your days and nights sneezing.

First, make sure you're checking the pollen count and avoid going outside during the early morning hours. When you're driving, keep your windows up and when you're at home, keep your bedroom windows closed. Clean your air conditioning filters regularly. Also, if you've been outdoors, take a shower and wash your hair to get rid of any pollen before you go to bed.
