Watch Out for Fall Tennessee Allergies

Posted on: September 11th, 2023 by tcg_admin

It’s fall, and the weather is changing! That means allergic reactions are on the rise, especially here in Tennessee, where Ragweed pollen is prevalent. Here are the most common kinds of fall allergies in our area and some tips to help keep your home and health safe from common Tennessee allergies.

Common Fall Tennessee Allergies

  1. Ragweed Pollen: Ragweed is one of the most notorious fall allergens in Tennessee. The ragweed plant releases vast amounts of pollen into the air, causing sneezing, runny noses, and itchy eyes for those who are allergic.
  2. Mold Spores: In the fall, decaying leaves and damp conditions create an ideal environment for mold growth. Mold spores become airborne and can trigger allergic reactions, especially in individuals with mold allergies.
  3. Dust Mites: While dust mites are present year-round, they can become more problematic in the fall as people spend more time indoors. Dust mite allergens can exacerbate asthma and cause allergic reactions.
  4. Pet Allergens: Many people bring their pets indoors during the cooler fall months, leading to increased exposure to pet dander. This can be particularly troublesome for individuals with pet allergies.
  5. Indoor Allergens: As people close windows and rely on heating systems, indoor allergens like dust, pollen, and mold can become concentrated, leading to increased allergy symptoms.
