LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Many Arkansans, myself included, have recently struggled with allergies.
For most people, allergy season is in the spring, when everything is in bloom. This is true for those who react to pollen from trees and grasses. Fall is another time when some people start sneezing again.
This is mainly caused by ragweed. According to the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture, ragweed is very abundant in Arkansas and releases its pollen in late summer and early fall.
Unfortunately, there is no immediate relief from the high pollen count. Over the next few days, ragweed pollen counts will remain near high levels,
Several factors can reduce pollen counts. Rain can help wash pollen from the air for temporary relief. A gel or gel would also do the trick.
There’s no rain forecast over the next week and frost is unlikely for a few more weeks, so if you experience allergy flare-ups, they’ll likely continue.
