Football, mild weather, the glorious change in leaves nature offers. There's so much to love about fall. But millions of people with fall allergies tell a very different story. So how can allergy sufferers find relief from their symptoms? With more now, here's Holly Firfer with today's Health Minute. Anne Corbitt loves the fall, walking, hiking, camping and tailgating. "Sometimes that's been really tough, because of my allergies, because just standing outside, um, can make them happen," says Corbitt. Since her teens, year-round allergies slowed her down, in fall, a major culprit? Ragweed. In addition, mold spores can often be found on fallen leaves and as a result... "It's very common for people who have year-round allergies to have worsening of their symptoms during the fall, as well as spring," says Dr. Alan Redding, an Allergist at Piedmont Atlanta. Redding tells patients there are some steps they can take that can help, including... Buying Hepa air filters, using a saline nasal spray, avoiding raking or bagging leaves if they have a sensitivity to mold, or using a mask. "If they need to work outdoors or spend significant amounts of time outdoors, its best that they do that later in the day," says Dr. Redding. Redding says these tips may help with mild symptoms, but see a board-certified allergist if symptoms are more severem, line in Anne's case. She started on allergy shots almost two years ago. The immunotherapy works by gradually reducing a person's sensitivity to their allergens. "The shots have been life-changing," says Corbitt. She can now enjoy all that the season has to offer.
