How to survive allergy season
October 12, 2020
Living in Austin means living with allergies. Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, is a common condition that causes symptoms many of us are very familiar with, such as sneezing, stuffy, itchy or runny nose, watery eyes, and itching on the roof of the mouth. Dr. Colleen S. Adkins, Allergy and Asthma Specialist at ARC Wilson Parke, ARC Round Rock, and ARC Medical Plaza Specialty, says “Here in Austin, many people suffer from allergies due to the year round prevalence of pollen.”
In this recent ARC Healthcare Minute podcast, Dr. Adkins advises all allergy sufferers to “avoid exposure during times of high pollen or mold counts.” In other words, know your allergies and when they are active. To hear the complete podcast, click the link above.
