So, when is the sneezing season?

There’s almost always something in the air. In many parts of the country, it’s apparent when fall and spring allergy season is present.

 However, because various grasses produce irritants, the season for sneezing can extend through the warm summer months, too.

 According to Ed Neuzil, ARNP, PhD and owner of the Allergy, Sinus and Asthma Family Health Center in Central Florida, golfers are especially susceptible to experiencing sinus irritation.  That’s because many golf lovers take advantage of the warm weather by heading to the greens where they are spend a lot of time on the grass. 

 And while the rainy season can help wash away some of the pollen, it can nurture the growth of mold spores another airborne irritant.

ImageNeuzil said that patients can be tested to determine what they are allergic to and then the patient takes a serum that includes the diluted irritants that cause discomfort. This serum is then injected into the patient. Called immunotherapy, it enables the body’s own immune system to learn to protect itself from these pollutants.

 Of course, not everyone needs the immunotherapy to protect themselves from dry, itchy eyes and noses.  For many people, just avoiding the irritants can make a difference. 

 The trick is being prepared for the potential to be exposed to known or unknown allergens wherever you go.
