  • Be proactive to fight those fall allergies

    There’s a lot to look forward to in the fall, but if you suffer from fall allergies, it can be hard to enjoy the season.
    Hay fever, also called allergic rhinitis, starts with cold-like symptoms. Unlike a cold that goes away within a week, hay fever lingers until the cause of the allergic reaction is identified and treated. One of the most common causes, especially during the fall allergy season, is ragweed. Ragweed begins to pollinate in mid-August and sticks around until a hard freeze.
