Battling Fall Allergies

Sorry, this video is no longer available

Just because the blooming season is over doesn’t mean allergies aren’t still with us.

If you’re wondering why you may be sneezing more, a fall allergy might be triggering your problem.

Ragweed usually starts releasing its pollen in late August, but that pollen can linger into the late fall.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, about three quarters of people who are allergic to spring plants are allergic to ragweed.

Let’s not forget mold – spores love wet areas, which means piles of wet leaves can be its breeding ground.

Dust is also a major allergy trigger.

If you turn on your heater, you stir them up. Those tiny bugs are in almost every home.

If you are suffering from serious runny nose, watery eyes, itching and coughing see your doctor.
