We’re sure you’re very happy that the warm weather is going to start fading out and you’ll be rid of those spring and summer allergies. Sorry to break it to you, but fall brings just as many allergies and irritants as spring does. And while you know you won’t get as much pollen up your nose, there may be other things you might not know about fall allergies.
Hay Fever has Nothing to Do with Hay.
Contrary to its name, hay fever is just a general term used to describe the symptoms you get when you suffer from late summer allergies. If there’s ragweed in your area, you could be more susceptible to allergy symptoms.
Fallen Leaves Can Irritate Your Allergies
Forget jumping into big piles of crimson and gold leaves — you’re going to be sneezing up a storm. Those leaves can trap mold and pollen spores, so if you have to rake them out of your yard, make sure you wear a protective mask to block out allergens.
Lingering Warm Weather Could Get You Sick
While some people love when warm weather sticks around well into the days of fall, the strange weather patterns can actually mess with your health. More mold spores can be released into the air if the weather is too humid or if it’s dry and windy.
You Can Easily Suffer from Indoor Allergens, Too.
Your allergies may not just flare up outside. Inside factors can affect them too, especially when it comes to kids being in school. Chalkdust, cleaning products, and classroom pets can all cause you or your child to suffer from fall allergies.
