Spring has sprung in Mississippi! Trees and plants have recovered from winter and are full of new leaves and blooms. While spring in Jackson is lovely, it also brings seasonal allergies. The main culprits for springtime allergies in Jackson are elm, juniper, oak, maple and ragweed. Jackson is known for high pollen counts, which can result in you suffering through this otherwise great time of year.
Seasonal allergies can really take a toll on your daily life. Constant sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, runny nose and cough are just some of the average symptoms that come along with seasonal allergies. Over the counter allergy medications may mask your symptoms, but they are not helping you work against the allergen.
Allergy testing allows you to take control of allergy season. When you know what you are allergic to you know how to treat it better. You may be able to avoid your allergen, manage with OTC medications or maybe allergy drops are right for you. Allergy drops, or sublingual immunotherapy, actually help you to build an immunity and resistance to your allergy.
