Are your allergies acting up?
With the change of seasons, come the change of allergens in your area. Geographic factors are known to cause allergies, which affect more than half of the U.S. population. Allergen-specific testing is the first step in treating allergies, in some cases overcoming them entirely.
Geographic allergens are classified under the following main categories: tree, grass, mold, weed, and animal/dust.
In early spring or late winter, trees release pollen, which is one of the main causes of allergy symptoms such as itchy eyes, runny or stuffy nose and cough. Ash, Aspen, Beech, Birch, Box elder, Cedar, Cottonwood, Elm, Hickory, Mountain elder, Mulberry, Oak, Pecan and Willow Trees are all known to cause allergies.
Grass starts to grow in the months of late spring and early summer and pollen gets released. Types of grass that usually provoke allergy symptoms include Bermuda grass, Johnson grass, Kentucky bluegrass, Orchard grass, Redtop grass, Rye grass, Sweet vernal grass and Timothy grass.
If you have an allergy and it seems that it’s all year round, you may be allergic to the spores in mold or fungi. The major offenders are Alternaria, Cladosporium (Hormodendrum), Aspergillus, Penicillium, Helmin thosporium, Epicoccum, Fusarium, Mucor, Rhizopus and Aureobasidium (Pullularia).
Pollen from weed get release in the months of late summer and early fall. Weed pollen includes Nettle, Pigweed, Ragweed, Sheep Sorrel, Thistle, and Russian.
Allergies can be caused by animal dander and dust. These include Cat Dander, Cockroach, D farina, D pteronyssinus and Dog Dander.
