Summer Allergies

→How Do They Affect Me?

While summer is promising warm weather, lots of sunny days on the beach, and beautiful flowers, for people with allergies or asthma, it’s a season of sneezing, watery eyes, and difficulty breathing. Allergies in Florida seem to get worse as the season changes.
Dr. Geeta Khare describes the common symptoms, causes, and possible treatments of summer allergies. She is board certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology and American Board of Internal Medicine. She points out that because of the geographical location of Florida Panhandle, residents and visitors exposure to particular types of pasture grasses can make allergies more severe.

One of the primary treatments available is the avoidance of the known pollens. The trick is the necessity to staying inside and limiting the presence of pollens in your home and garden. Another option is medication, and there are many oral medications as well as allergy shots. Dr. Khare recommends talking to your allergist about the right treatment for you.
