Winter Weather Impacts Spring Allergies

Winter weather has a significant impact on spring allergies.  The presence of El Nino in 2015 resulted in milder temperatures and more rainfall during winter months. This has primed the spring season for a heavier release of pollen and intensified symptoms for allergy sufferers.  These conditions also contribute to outdoor molds which often go unnoticed and add to discomfort.

So what can you do to combat allergies this spring?

  1. Plan outdoor activities, such as exercise or gardening, after early morning hours when pollen counts drop.
  2. Avoid outdoor activities on windy days when pollen levels are the highest.
  3. Clean or replace indoor air filters that get quickly saturated during peak pollen times.
  4. Enjoy fast-acting symptom relief with Dr. Nenninger’s Triple Allergy Defense.
