People often think allergies occur in the springtime when pollen fills the air. However, during the fall season, individuals with allergies can also suffer. The most common fall allergy trigger is ragweed, which typically pollinates at the end of summer but lingers with Georgia summer’s heat and lack of rain to clean the air.
Other common triggers include mold spores from damp leaves which can cause sneezing and a runny nose. People with asthma can be especially sensitive to fall allergies and have difficulty breathing.
Parc Communities residents have been enjoying the cooler temperatures with friends and family in our beautiful courtyard and spacious terrace. Our residents frequently attend outdoor excursions, and want to enjoy their time outside, so we’re offering these tips that can keep you feeling good throughout fall:
-Keep windows closed during peak pollen times, typically 10am to 3pm to keep allergens from getting inside
-Avoid damp areas outside, especially leaf piles, to prevent inhalation of mold spores
-If you do suffer from allergies, talk with your doctor to find an allergy medication that works best for you
