Don’t let your allergies keep you indoors. Learn the sources and how to treat your symptoms.

Spring receives a warm welcome from many Americans but it also ushers in an unwanted period for the millions who suffer from allergies, according to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI). The warmth and humidity emerging during the changing seasons produce a breeding ground for numerous allergens.

Trees and grasses are among the main culprits identified by the ACAAI that can affect allergy sufferers during this time. Knowing these allergy triggers which in many cases means planning

a trip to the allergist and avoiding them year-round is the most effective way to reduce symptoms at any time.
