Why Are My Sinus Symptoms Worse in the Fall?

Why is Fall the Worst Season for My Allergies?

Fall marks the start of new beginnings — including a new season of allergy symptoms. Though the fall foliage may be visually stunning, it may leave you with a running nose and scratchy throat.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s essential to manage and treat your allergies as we head into flu season. Keep reading to learn how our board-certified specialists at Center for Allergy and Asthma of Georgia can help.

How Autumn Weather Affects Your Allergies

Experts estimate that 37 million Americans are afflicted with sinusitis each year, yet many patients experience worse symptoms in the fall and winter than during the spring and summer. Ragweed pollen and mold are both prevalent during the cooler months — both of these allergens can trigger your immune system’s response and cause an allergy attack.

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, pet dander, and mold can aggravate your symptoms.

The best way to manage your allergies is to visit one of our board-certified specialists for testing, so that we can determine what you’re allergic to. From there, it’s vital to receive allergy treatment as soon as possible. This year, allergy testing can not only help you breathe easier, but help ease your mind of the idea that you may have contracted COVID-19.
