Tucson Living: Fall allergies

Posted: Updated:

For some of us living in Tucson means living with allergies. This year in particular has been a difficult year for allergy sufferers.

Dr. David Friedman with Allergy Partners of Arizona says that the the post-monsoon season tends to be a difficult time. Right now most people are suffering from weed pollen and grass.

There is not much, if any, tree pollen out right now. Dr. Friedman said that one of the biggest things you should be on the look out for is sleep disturbance caused by uncontrolled allergies. That is a major sign you should consult your doctor for treatment.  

Some things you can do to help reduce the effects of allergies is to place a furnace filter in your open window at night. That way you will get the cool air and cut down on the amount of pollen.

Dr. Friedman also suggests taking a rinse shower in the evening to clear the allergens off of your skin and hair. Relief is still about a month away. Tucson's best months as far as airborne particulate levels tend to be July due to the extreme heat and December.
