When Does Allergy Season End? The Answer Might Surprise You
- On April 17, 2023
As the spring allergy season marches on, a common question we hear this time of year is “When does allergy season end?” It doesn’t–at least not in the way you might think.
Every Season Brings Allergens
We are in the midst of the spring allergy season, but as the allergens that peak during this season (like tree pollen) taper off they are replaced by different allergens. In the summer, grass pollen and mold become more prevalent. In the fall, pollen from weeds like ragweed and other types of molds are high. In the winter, allergy sufferers have to fight off indoor triggers like dust mites and pet dander.
Allergy Seasons Are Getting Worse
Unfortunately, allergy seasons are getting longer and stronger due to climate change, meaning those seasons are very quickly starting to blur together. Your spring allergies might start to seem like summer allergies and vice versa.
