Preparing for Fall Allergy Season
As summer winds down, it's time to prepare for a whole new set of allergens. And here in Georgia, allergy season may start earlier than you think.
When is Peak Allergy Season in Georgia?
Typically, fall allergies peak in the south around the end of August through the first few weeks of September. However, above-normal temperatures and rainy weather may hit the Southeast harder this fall, making it a bad year for fall allergy sufferers.
Most Common Fall Allergens to Watch Out For
Ragweed is without a doubt the most common fall allergen during autumn here in Georgia. Additionally, without the warmer temperatures that spring and summer have to offer, many Georgia residents are spending time indoors. Within our homes, schools, and places of work, indoor allergens such as dust and pet dander can aggravate your symptoms.
Other common allergens that you could be affected by this fall include:
- Mold spores
- Seasonal pollen
