Mayo Clinic Health System allergist shares advice for finding relief this allergy season
LA CROSSE (WKBT) — If you’ve been spending time outside this fall, you could be feeling some hay fever.
Mayo Clinic allergists say fall is a very common season for seasonal allergies. For many of us, ragweed pollen is typically the biggest culprit.
“And in that allergic person, there is an inflammatory response or an allergic response that causes the swelling, the runny nose and the mucus production,” said James Li, an allergist at Mayo Clinic Health System.
Doctors have solutions for allergy season.
Mayo Clinic recommends limiting your time outdoors when pollen counts are high.
They also recommend trying over-the-counter medications like antihistamines, decongestants and nasal sprays.
If those don’t help, they also suggest making a appointment with an allergist for long-term relief.
