AFC Hillsdale Offers Expert Spring Allergy Care | Learn Symptoms & Tips

April 25, 2024

As spring arrives, bringing warmer weather and blooming landscapes, it also marks the beginning of allergy season. For many in Hillsdale, this means dealing with the discomfort of spring allergies.

At AFC Hillsdale, we are committed to helping you manage your allergies so you can enjoy the season to its fullest without being bogged down by bothersome symptoms.


What Triggers Spring Allergies?

In New Jersey, tree, grass, and weed pollens are the primary springtime offenders. These pollens are abundant from March through May, during which time they can severely affect those with sensitivities.

Even if you haven't experienced allergies in the past, it's possible to develop them later in life—a phenomenon that might catch some off guard.

Identifying Spring Allergy Symptoms

Common symptoms of spring allergies include:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy nose, throat, or eyes
  • Watery eyes
  • Sinus pressure
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Fatigue

Our AFC Hillsdale healthcare team can help identify whether your symptoms are due to allergies or another condition, guiding appropriate treatment.

Tips for Reducing Pollen Exposure

Here are some practical tips to reduce your exposure to pollen:

  • Avoid outdoor activities during early morning hours, when pollen counts are typically highest.
  • Stay indoors on windy days or immediately after periods of high pollen counts.
  • Shower and change clothing after being outdoors to remove pollen.
  • Use HEPA filters in your home and keep windows and doors closed during high pollen periods.
  • Keep track of pollen levels through local weather reports to plan your days accordingly.
