Summer has come to an end and Fall is definitely “in the air”. For some, this means cooler temperatures, changing leaves, and all things pumpkin! However, for the thirty-something million Americans who suffer from allergies, the change in season will also bring about sneezing, sniffling, and itchy eyes, more commonly known as hay fever.
Ragweed is a sturdy annual that can produce billions of pollen grains that become airborne and can travel great distances for long periods of time. This allergen’s season is now in full effect, reeking havoc and thus being the main culprit for hay fever and other allergy symptoms. When treating allergies, most people turn to medications like antihistamines, nasal sprays, and decongestants. But those aren’t the only options available.
