Tree Pollen May Be Causing Your Allergies


I think it started about 2 weeks ago. Stuffy nose, sneezing, bloodshot eyes. All signs of a Spring cold. Sound the same for you? Welcome to the club. Chances are we have the same problem, an allergy to a kind of tree, at least according to WEB MD.

Did you known tree pollens are very fine and powdery and the wind can carry them for miles. So, the issue may not even be in your yard or even your block. Inhaling even a small amount of pollen can trigger problems with allergies.

Generally people think all allergies are tied to flowers blooming in their yard and that’s not always the case. Keep in mind trees with colorful flowers also have sticky pollen that doesn’t get blown around.

Trees that often set off allergies include:

Box Elder
Mountain Elder

You might try to stay indoors on dry windy days when the pollen counts are high. Keep windows closed. When you come back in the house from outdoors rinse your face including eyebrows, nostrils and wash your hands. You might consider changing clothes each time you come back in from outdoors if you’re really having a tough reaction to pollen this Spring.

The bottom line is Spring will be over in a few weeks and tree pollen won’t be an issue. Then it’s on to ragweed.
