Attention Central Valley residents, dry season is upon us! So, what does that mean for allergy sufferers?

Understanding Dry Season

Dry season typically spans from late spring to early fall in the Central Valley and is marked by hot, arid conditions and minimal rainfall. This lack of moisture creates dusty environments ripe with airborne allergens like pollen, dust mites and mold spores.

Impact on Allergies

  • Increased Pollen Counts: Plants release abundant pollen during dry season, triggering symptoms such as sneezing, itching and congestion for allergy sufferers.
  • Dust Storms: The dry, dusty conditions can lead to dust storms, exacerbating allergy symptoms. 
  • Indoor Allergens: Seeking refuge indoors from the heat can worsen allergies as dust mites and mold thrive in warm, humid indoor environments.

Managing Allergies and Asthma During Dry Season

Clean your home regularly and consider investing in high-efficiency air filters for your HVAC system. You can also monitor pollen counts so you can make an informed decision regarding the amount of time you spend outdoors that day.
