As much as we all love summer, it does have its drawbacks – just like every other season. With summer it’s the number of allergens in the air due to all of the fully bloomed trees, flowers, and grass. Because of this, of the things, you’ll want to concentrate on this summer reducing allergens in your home. Reducing allergens in your home will help keep your home clean and healthy. So now you might be wondering what kind of allergens to watch out for, so we’re going to share some of the most common allergens found during the summer season:

Allergens During Summer

  • Pollen – Pollen is found throughout spring and summer. Grass pollen is most common during the end of spring, while weed pollen is the most common form of summer pollen. Pollen is the one allergen that affects the most amount of people. Pollen count tends to be high on dry, warm, and windy days, which means you may want to stay indoors when exercising during these periods. Make sure you wash your hair at night and change your clothes before going to bed to avoid tracking pollen into your sheets.
  • Poison ivy – Poison ivy is the most common outdoor allergen. Most people have a sensitivity to poison ivy. Avoiding it isn’t too difficult – just stay in open areas and keep away from bushes and other plants. If you do come in contact with poison ivy, there are plenty of creams available that can help you treat it.
  • Seasonal fruits – If you are really allergic to certain types of pollen, then you could suffer from a cross-reaction when you eat certain types of fruits, such as apples, melons, and celery. This is known as oral allergy syndrome and can result in itching, swelling or tingling of the mouth. Fortunately, this allergy is not a life-threatening one.
  • Stings – Insect stings are a common summer allergy trigger and can lead to a severe reaction called anaphylaxis. Bees, yellow jackets, hornets, and wasps are most active at the end of summer, so avoid them when possible.
