The Most Common Summer Allergies in Texas

Written By Temple Allergy and Wellness on June 11, 2019

Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes allergies.

Due to the year-round temperate climate most Texas communities experience, allergies can be a big deal any time of year, but summer is the worst.

Summer allergies in Texas can present with a host of symptoms, including:

  • Sniffling
  • Sneezing
  • Sinus congestion
  • Red, irritated eyes,
  • Post nasal drip
  • Itchy palate

Since every person is different and symptoms wax and wane throughout the season, you may experience one or more of the above — or even symptoms that aren’t listed here. Let’s talk about common allergens in Texas that could trigger your allergies.

Summer Allergy Triggers in Texas and How to Handle Them

Grasses are a huge allergy trigger and Texas has plenty of them.

Summer is prime time for grasses, including Timothy grass, Bluegrass, Bermuda grass and more. Blooming alongside the grasses are allergy-provoking weeds like pigweed, sagebrush, and ragweed.

Add a nice dose of mold caused by rainy and humid conditions and you have a recipe for a summer of sneezing.

While it’s true that summer in Texas comes with a host of allergens, Temple Allergy and Wellness can help you take control of your symptoms so summer can be more sun and less sneeze.

Using a simple, pain-free test called the Multi-Test PC2, the staff at Temple Allergy can test for multiple allergens at once to help you get relief fast.

After they narrow down the allergy triggers specific to you, they’ll get you on a simple, easy-to-accomplish schedule of pain-free sublingual (under-the-tongue) allergy drops.
