Allergies likely to come with cooler weather

Ragweed is the prime cause of fall allergies

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – If you’re an allergy sufferer, cooler September weather often comes with sneezing, itchy eyes and runny nose.

Ragweed is the prime cause of fall allergies. Ragweed pollen fills the air from August through October, usually up until the first frost. If you’re allergic, you’ll experience symptoms like coughing, sniffling and itchy eyes.

Dan Rivera of Springfield told 22News, “Missed work because of it. It’s because of pollen and stuff like that. There’s not much else I can do about it. Just deal with it.”

You can try to minimize your symptoms by using a nasal spray or taking antihistamines you can buy over the counter. You can also track pollen counts on your phone and minimize your exposure to pollen. Click here to find out how.
