Fighting Fall Allergies: Ragweed

Fall is just around the corner, and while it will bring cooler weather, it will also usher in a new wave of allergens. Ragweed is by far the most common allergen to attack during the fall season. Here are a few tips to fight back: 

  1. Equip yourself with nasal steroids such as Flonase or Nasonex.
  2. Boost your stock of antihistamines.
  3. Wash your pets on a more frequent basis.
  4. Keep your windows closed to avoid letting allergens in to your home or car.
  5. Stay indoors on days the pollen count is high.
