Tips to avoid pollen allergy!

The pollen that turns the spring months into a nightmare for people with pollen allergy are the male seeds of the plants. Pollen can be carried by the wind for miles and can cause allergies even in people who are miles away from the plant. Tree pollen, meadow grass pollen, grain-cereal-grain pollen and weed pollen cause complaints in different periods. The earliest tree pollens appear between January and March, then grass pollens between April and May, grain pollens between May and June, and weed pollens between September and October last. The precautions to be taken are only taken during the pollen season. Pollen season starts in April in our country, peaks in May and decreases in June. (Recently, with the effect of global warming, the pollen season has started to shift to March and even to the end of February)

The amount of pollen in the air is usually higher in the morning hours. Again, on hot and windy days, pollen spread increases. On rainy days, the amount of pollen flying in the air decreases. Pollen is difficult to avoid. For this, some measures to be taken can reduce the amount of pollen that a person is exposed to.
