Seasonal Allergies in San Antonio

When it comes to top Allergy Capitals™, San Antonio is ranked in the top 10 most challenging cities to live in with seasonal allergies. If you suffer from allergies, you know that springtime is prime allergy season. The pollen, dust, and dirt in the air cause a lot of grief for many residents. Identifying what is causing your allergies can help you determine the best way to address your issues.

 

Seasonal Allergies

While cedar fever runs rampant from December through February, San Antonio’s tree pollen season typically runs from March through May. Here are a couple of spring allergy offenders:

 

  • Oak pollen
  • Ash pollen
  • Elm pollen
  • Pecan pollen
  • Cottonwood pollen

 

Do I Have Allergies or a Cold?

It can be hard to know exactly what’s happening when the sniffling starts since allergies and the common cold pop up around the same time. While seasonal allergies and colds share many of the same symptoms, you will never get a fever with allergies. If you have allergies, symptoms tend to stick around longer while colds usually only last about a week.

 

Solutions

While there is no cure for seasonal allergies, there are highly effective treatments that can significantly reduce allergy symptoms including balloon sinuplasty. Balloon sinuplasty is considered state-of-the-art when it comes to relieving sinus problems. It helps open and widen sinus passages to relieve facial pain, pressure, headaches, and post nasal drip. Contact our board-certified physicians in Otolaryngology to relieve the pain and pressure associated with chronic sinusitis!
