mountaincedarallergyMost people suffer from the worst allergy symptoms either in the fall or spring. This is due to airborne spores from mold and pollen, but winter allergies are normal, too. 

If you find yourself needing to pack extra tissues during your winter duck or deer hunting for a runny nose and watery eyes, you may be suffering from a cedar allergy. 

Here’s how to tell if you need mountain cedar allergy treatment in Temple, TX.

7 Signs You’re Suffering from Cedar Fever

It’s not just you, everyone’s allergies are getting worse.

A warmer planet has created longer pollen seasons for many plants. While ragweed pollen season has gotten longer in northern parts of the continent, it’s shortened in Texas.

However, Texan hunters susceptible to allergies face a new threat: cedar fever. 

In January of 2019, cedar pollen was so dense it looked like smoke whipping around in the wind. Here are a few signs you’re suffering from a cedar allergy.

  1. Symptoms begin in mid-December and run through February
  2. Plugged ears
  3. Nasal congestion
  4. Runny nose
  5. Watery eyes
  6. Sore throat
  7. Some loss of taste or smell (due to congestion)

Mountain Cedar Allergy Treatment in Temple, TX

The term “cedar fever” is slightly misleading because you’re suffering from an allergy to cedar pollen. While inflammation and sneezing may slightly raise your temperature, you won’t experience a traditional low-grade fever.

Pollen from cedar and other plants takes your body by surprise. One day your air is clear and the next, it’s filled with pollen. Immunotherapy drops can keep you in the woods hunting all winter long.

Immunotherapy drops help your body build a tolerance to common allergens like cedar pollen. Unlike shots, you can even take them at home on your own time!
