Tips to Help With Your Allergies In Southwest Florida
On a hot day in Southwest Florida, who doesn’t love those wonderful subtropical breezes fluttering the palm fronds? But as welcome as they are, those balmy breezes can trigger allergy symptoms that can make our lives miserable.
When you have a runny nose, itchy eyes, congestion or sneezing bouts, you’re probably suffering from either a perennial or a seasonal allergy, says Dr. Laura Veras, a board-certified allergy and immunology specialist with Lee Physician Group.
“Perennial allergies occur all year long due to allergens in our environment whereas seasonal happen at different times of the year, depending on which allergens trigger a reaction,” Dr. Veras says. “In the spring, tree, grass and flower pollen are common triggers of seasonal allergies.”
