Why Is Pollen Count Important for Allergy Sufferers?
If you have a pollen allergy, the severity of your allergy symptoms can be directly related to the amount of pollen exposure. The pollen for spring, summer and fall varies with the type of pollinating plants and the weather. Knowing the pollen count (the measurement of how much pollen is in the air on any given day) may help you prepare yourself against allergy attacks.
Please consider doing outdoor activities when the pollen count is not very high. If you have activities planned for a day when the pollen count is high, washing your hair, taking a shower and/or changing your clothes may prevent a prolonged allergic response. On days with a higher pollen count, keeping the windows closed and running your air conditioner can be helpful.
