Understanding the Pollen Count- Atlanta ENT

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, the pollen count is a number you might want to pay attention to, especially when planning outdoor activities. Pollen.com provides nationwide coverage of pollen counts, and allows you to enter the zip code of where you will be to see a four day pollen count forecast, and your local weather station will also provide you with daily pollen counts.

Pollen counts greatly impact the severity of allergic reactions in those that suffer from seasonal allergies. These counts are the highest around the times of the year that the plants and trees begin to bloom.

Weather impacts the pollen count, but unfortunately the type of weather most of us want to be spending time outdoors in is also the weather that allows for the highest pollen counts. Pollen thrives in the dry, breezy weather we all enjoy in the spring and summer, and is lowest when it rains.

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, consider visiting Atlanta ENT for allergy testing and treatment. The treatment of allergies, including pollen allergies, has come a long way, and with treatment plans such as rush immunotherapy, you could be outdoors enjoying the spring weather without worrying about the daily pollen count.
