Pollen Allergies At Worst In Tampa Bay Area

Are your eyes itchy and watery? Are you sneezing and coughing? Tree pollen is at its worst now, and so are allergies.

Plants pollinate all 12 months in Florida, since there hard freezes are so rare. That puts Florida near the top when it comes to allergies. From February through April, though, pollen is at its worst.

The reaction the body has to pollen can be lessened by simply washing it off or wiping it from the skin or hair.

If you're still feeling the effects of pollen, you can try eye drops, nasal spray, throat drops, and antihistamines.

If those don't help, an allergy specialist may be helpful.
