Seasonal Allergies

  • Winter Although allergies disappear during the colder months of winter in the U.S., the opposite is true in Texas. Winter is considered the worst season of the year for allergies in Texas. The allergies experienced by cedar trees can be severe. In some cases, the allergy can be so strong people may think they have the flu. Be cautious of cedar fever!
  • Spring The allergies people experience in spring can usually be found nationwide. The main cause of springtime allergy discomfort is pollen from oak trees. Somewhat milder, but still relevant allergen-producing trees in Texas include cottonwood, elm, ash, and pecan.
  • Summer Summers can be a terrible experience for some allergy sufferers. While most are enjoying outdoor activities, some people find they are allergic to grasses, including Bermuda, Bahia, Sweet Vernal, Timothy, and Orchard. Freshly cut grass is not a friend of allergy sufferers.
  • Fall Ragweed is a popular allergen affecting people during fall. Ragweed can emit around a billion grains of pollen each season. Temperature plays a role in the severity of these reactions.

Other allergens are present year-round.
