Grass-Grasses tend to start growing in the early spring. In the late spring and early summer, they release pollen into the air. Similar to other allergens, the wind can carry it for miles. Wind carries pollen in the air, specially when it’s dry and sunny. Most type of grasses release pollen only when they grow tall. The pollen comes from a feathery flower that grows at the top. If you keep your lawn mowed, it is less likely to release pollen. But Bermuda grass and some other types can still release the sneezy stuff even it you keep it short. Some of the most common grass allergies are: Bermuda, Kentucky Blue grass, Timothy grass and Johnson grass.

Common grass allergy symptoms: Stuffy nose, runny nose, sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, postnasal drip, and cough.

One thing that can help is to keep the windows in the house shot and run the air conditioning to keep the pollens out of the house. Treatment options to restore quality of life: Immunotherapy, Rapid desensitization and allergy drops.

We recommend that you talk to your doctor about long term and effective treatment for your grass allergies.
