New Allergy Season Arrives

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Allergy season has arrived … or perhaps it´s just continuing in a different form.

That is the prognosis from Tuolumne County Health Officer Dr. Todd Stolp. He says,What we´re facing now is the transition from mold allergies from being indoors in the winter to pollen allergies from the flowers.” Stolp notes that when the grasses dry up later in the summer it will create even more allergy issues. He says residents should take steps at home. This includes using drapes that do no shed much dust, eliminate exposure to animals and try to make sure homes are free of insects.

Stolp adds that while there are a tremendous number of over-the-counter medications available, only two main ingredients can be found in all those medicines; antihistamine and pseudoephedrine.
