Winter Allergies

Common causes of winter allergies include mold, pet dander and dust mites. Symptoms can include stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing and coughing.

Mold - Tends to grow in damp or humid areas such as bathrooms, basements and windowsills. When the spores from mold get into the circulating air of your home they can trigger allergy symptoms.

Pet Dander - Can be a major cause of allergies, especially in the winter time when animals are inside more often due to the cold weather. It's not the fur that triggers allergies but a protein found in the saliva, urine and shedding skin cells.

Dust Mites - Not to be confused with bed bugs. Dust Mites flourish in bedding and dust. The droppings and remains from these microscopic creatures cause allergic reactions.

Fall Allergies and Ragweed

Ragweed
One of the most prominent fall allergens is ragweed. Ragweed plants produce an abundant amount of lightweight pollen that can travel hundreds of miles on the wind. Ragweed tends to bloom from late summer to the middle of fall and grows just about everywhere. The first winter frost usually ends the ragweed allergy season but in the South or Southwest, where temperatures are warmer, ragweed can continue to pollinate into the winter months.

Four Things You Might Not Know About Fall Allergies


(ARA) – As most allergy sufferers will tell you, allergy symptoms can always be bothersome, turning any time of year into sneezing season. A runny nose, itchy eyes and scratchy throat can ariseas the days get shorter and the leaves begin to change.

The fall can be especially difficult forpeople who are sensitive to mold and ragweed pollen.But these seasonal elements aren’t the only triggers that can make symptoms worse this time of year. There are also a few lesser known triggers.Here are four things you might not know about fall allergies, courtesy of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology:

* Hay Fever? - Hay fever, a term from a bygone era, actually has nothing to do with hay. Instead, it’s a general term used to describe the symptoms of late summer allergies. Ragweed is a common cause of hay fever, which is also known as allergic rhinitis. The plant usually begins to pollenate in mid-August and may continue to be a problem until a hard freeze, depending on where you live. See an allergist for prescription medications to control symptoms or to see if allergy shots may be your best option.

* Lingering Warm Weather – While most people enjoy Indian summer, unseasonably warm temperatures can make rhinitis symptoms last longer. Mold spores can also be released when humidity is high, or the weather is dry and windy. Be sure to begin taking medications before your symptoms start. Track your allergy symptoms with MyNasalAllergyJournal.org and visit with your allergist to find relief.

* Pesky Leaves - Some folks might find it difficult to keep up with raking leaves throughout the autumn. But for allergy sufferers, raking presents its own problem. It can stir agitating pollen and moldinto the air, causing allergy and asthma symptoms. Those with allergies should wear an NIOSH rated N95mask when raking leaves, mowing the lawn and gardening.

* School Allergens - It’s not only seasonal pollen and mold that triggers allergies this time of year. Kids are often exposed to classroom irritants and allergy triggers.These can include chalk dust and classroom pets. Students with food allergies may also be exposed to allergens in the lunch room.Kids with exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) may experience attacks during recess or gym class. Help your child understand what can trigger their allergies and asthma, and how they can avoid symptoms. Be sure to notify teachers and the school nurse of any emergency medications, such as quick relief inhalers and epinephrine.

No matter the season, it’s important for those who think they may be suffering from allergies or asthma to see a board-certified allergist. An allergist can help you develop a treatment plan, which caninclude both medication and avoidance techniques.

Having your allergies properly identified and treated will help you and your family enjoy the season. To find an allergist and learn more about allergies and asthma, visit www.AllergyandAsthmaRelief.org.

Do Pets Get Allergies?

When a cat has allergies, her immune system is overly sensitive to certain everyday substances and begins to identify them as dangerous. Even though these substances—or allergens—are usually common in most environments and harmless to most animals, a cat with allergies will have an extreme reaction to them. As her body tries to rid itself of these substances, she may show a variety of symptoms. Read More at ASPCA

Ragweed Season and Allergy Relief

Ragweeds are flowering plants in the genus Ambrosia in the sunflower family Asteraceae. Common names include bitterweeds and bloodweeds. Each plant is reputed to be able to produce about a billion grains of pollen over a season, and the plant is anemophilous (wind-pollinated). It is highly allergenic, generally considered the greatest allergen of all pollens, and the prime cause of hay fever in North America. Common Ragweed (A. artemisiifolia) and Western Ragweed A. psilostachya are considered the most noxious to those prone to hay fever. Ragweeds bloom in the Northern Hemisphere from early July until mid-August or until cooler weather arrives. 

All ALLERGENA™ Zones are effective against Ragweed. Allergena is a, non-drowsy, geographically zoned, natural allergy relief formula that builds a strong immune system and helps to alleviate symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, congestion, sinus pressure, itchy & watery eyes.
