Allergy Alert: The Yellow Pollen Is Everywhere!

Just in case you didn’t notice how badly your car needs a wash, there is yellow pollen everywhere, and most of us notice it on our vehicles. The yellow pollen wafting through the air is the cause of many of allergic reactions and can tend to drive many people nearly mad.

From runny noses and sneezing to watery eyes and itchy throats, Houstonians are no stranger to the effects of the massive influx of pollen. Many people tend to run to the local pharmacy to buy some allergy medicine. That is one alternative, but often these over-the-counter medicines only mask the cause of the allergy and are very temporary.

Our goal at Medinet Family Care Clinic in southwest Houston is to educate patients on what causes their allergic reactions. Everyone is different, which means some people may be affected differently by the pollen, and there are some who aren’t affected at all. Along with pollen in the air, spring time releases other invisible or slightly invisible items in the air.

Some people are allergic to various types of grasses, weeds and trees. Depending on the type, these allergic reactions can cause some real issues. At our Houston medical clinic, we are able to pinpoint precisely which type of nature particle is causing the allergies.

WAYS TO FIND ALLERGIES

We strongly recommend coming to Medinet Family Care Clinic for your allergy tests and for allergy therapy. Along with this, we recommend making certain that your air filters in your vehicles and your home are clean and ready to catch different air particles, like dust, pet dander, and pollen.

If you have been suffering for years from allergies during spring and other times there is a change in the weather, it is time to put an end to your suffering. Come to our medical facility and let our highly trained and friendly staff take care of you and your family. Spring is the time of year when families are having BBQs and spending time at the pool. Don’t let allergies ruin Houston’s most lovely time of the year.
