Do you find that your allergies are at their worst during the summertime? Spring may be the most common time of year to experience allergy symptoms, but that doesn’t mean that the warm summer air isn’t full of things that make you sniffle, sneeze, and wheeze.
The best way to determine the cause of your allergies is to know what the most common culprits are. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the worst summer allergy instigators.
When springtime rolls around, all of the trees begin to shower the world in their powdery pollen, which can be a nightmare for allergy sufferers.
In the summertime, there are a number of different weeds and grasses that produce the same sneeze-inducing substance. Grass and weed pollen are so common that they are actually the number one culprit for summer allergies.
If you’re stuck sniffling and sneezing as June rolls into July, keep an eye out on the pollen count and do your best to avoid the outdoors when they are at their worst.
Summertime is as humid as it gets, and mold loves humidity. That’s why you may find that your mold allergies are at their worst as the summer carries on. It’s not necessarily possible to avoid mold entirely during the season, but you can keep an eye out for high mold count days and stay inside when they’re at their peak.
Insects tend to thrive as the weather gets warm. Combine that with the fact that people spend more time outside during the summer, and it shouldn’t be too surprising that insect stings are at their worst during this season.
Fortunately, stinging insects are easier to avoid than pollen and mold. If you’re allergic to any insects, make sure to keep an EpiPen with you whenever you go out and inform the people you’re with about your allergy.
