Control Your Spring Allergies
WebMD Live Events Transcript
Has spring lost its splendor because you're too busy sneezing and wheezing? We learned how to control spring allergies when Pamela Georgeson, DO, from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology joined us on April 13, 2005.

The best source for determining how much pollen and mold are in the air is to check pollen counts performed in your area. The best source to obtain these is the AAAAI web site at www.aaaai.org. That stands for the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. The higher the pollen and mold counts the more severe the allergy season will be for those patients who suffer from allergic rhinitis.
It is true that allergic rhinitis runs in families; however, if neither parent suffers from allergies it is still possible for their children to develop allergies. It is very possible that there are other family members who do suffer such as grandparents, aunts and uncles which could contribute to the heredity of your children.
