SPRING

Spring is the most beautiful time of the year with an abundance of blossoms and blooms everywhere. However this of course means that the biggest allergy trigger is pollen, particularly trees.

AUTUMN

When the leaves start to change colour and you feel a nip in the air, the main allergy to watch out for becomes perennial allergies. Mould & dust can start to become a problem.

SUMMER

Summer may be great for swimming and going to the beach but hot, dry days tend to make allergies worse. The main culprit during the warmer months is grass. Remember to shower and change when coming indoors because grass pollen can be brought inside by people and pets.

WINTER

During colder winter months, we tend to spend more of our time indoors. Unfortunately, that’s where many of the allergens are too. Outdoors, pollen levels are lower than usual, although airborne mould spores could still trigger allergy symptoms.
