Allergy season is always a pain. While pollen from trees can impact your allergies, most people don’t know that grass can do the same thing. So before you get caught off guard by grass allergies, here are some things you need to know about grass allergies. Check this infographic out.
Grass allergies are most prevalent in the spring and summer when the pollen is most abundant in their seed heads. Mowing a lawn at the wrong time, or not soon enough can kick up pollen from the grass and cause a spike in allergens.
Not all grasses are created equally. Some types of grasss are more likely to trigger allergens than others. The worst grasses include bermuda, Johnson, Kentucky, orchard, red top, rye, sweet vernal, bahia, and Timothy.
Grass allergens include stuffy or itchy nose, swollen eyes, cough, wheezing, asthma, fatigue, sore throat or even rash. If you have any of these symptoms you may be suffering from grass allergies or allergies from other sources.
It's simple, you can avoid grass allergies by keeping the lawn short. If the grass can not make a seed head, it will not produce pollen. You may also want to wear a mask while you mow, keep your windows and doors closed, and opt for less pollen-prone grasses.
While prevention may be best, according to this infographic treatments include antihistamines, and nasal coricostroids. If allergies persist, according to this infographic by AllergyEasy you may want to consider shots, or sublingual tablets or drops.
At the end of the day, no one wants to suffer from grass allergies. By following the tips in this infographic you can avoid grass allergies and make the most out of your lawn.
