It's fall and, for many, that means allergies
KFDM News - September 22 was the first official day of fall, and that fact combined with the recent rains means one thing for many Southeast Texans: Allergies.
Sinus headaches, sneezing and stuffy noses.
You can probably blame fall allergies for a lot of those symptoms.
For example, ragweed is the most common one. Doctors say the rain usually washes away a lot of the ragweed, but it brings in another problem -- mold.
It sticks around with humidity and once the ragweed comes back, it gives people who suffer from allergies a double dose of suffering.
Doctors recommend over the counter antihistamines and nasal sprays.
Typically, the peak of the fall allergy season in Texas comes in early October.
By December, cedar is back in the area. Then, trees start to pollinate in February.
