Allow us to highlight five frequently asked questions about spring allergies.
1. Can spring allergies make you feel sick?
Yes, allergies can make you feel sick. That’s why spring allergies are sometimes mistaken as a cold due to the nature of the symptoms. A fever is a telltale sign that you are dealing with a cold and NOT allergies. Allergies will not produce a fever.
2. What is the most common spring allergy?
Pollen is the most common spring allergy! Frustratingly, pollen is released into the air from three different culprits – trees, weeds, and grass. As necessary as pollen is for a healthy ecosystem, it can wreak havoc on allergy-sufferers.
3. Why do I suddenly have spring allergies?
There can be many different reasons why your spring allergy symptoms are surfacing. It’s possible that the pollen is being released in full force and is causing your immune system to respond dramatically. Or, if you’ve moved to a new location, your body may not be used to the spring allergies in the area. Regardless, talk to Dr. Brauer today about how to handle your spring allergies: 270-228-2811.
4. How long do allergies last in spring?
Spring allergies last until early summer. Unfortunately for allergy-sufferers, summer has a plethora of allergens that surface once spring allergens fade away! Allergens normally don’t dissipate until winter when nature hibernates for several months. But you shouldn’t deal with allergens for 3 out of 4 seasons of the year! Let us help.
5. Why are spring allergies worse at night?
The weather has everything to do with spring allergies at night. When the sun is warming the air, the pollen is easily pushed around by the wind. However, when the evening temperatures drop, so does the pollen. The pollen will blanket the outdoor areas and easily stick on your clothing and hair. When you come inside from an outing, make sure you throw your clothes in the hamper and take a shower right away.
