FAQ-Frequent Questions

Q. I seem to be having an increasing amount of allergy problems earlier and earlier in the year and it seems to be getting worse for the past several years...I hear that each year allergies and pollen are getting worse. Is that really true? Is there a connnection to climate change?

A. Tree pollination appears to be starting earlier and lasting longer, as well as grass and weed pollination. Ragweed especially appears to be increasing its northern reach into Canada, as there has been an increase in frost free days there! Pollen production and release indeed depend on the climate within which grasses, weeds and trees grow. Factors include temperature, humidity, soil moisture, soil radiation and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. It does appear that across the continental United States (North America), that not only has the amount of pollen released increased with the various weather (meteorological) factors, but even the period of the year and the duration of pollen release appears to be changing as well (for the worse).

Please contact us for more information about Pre-Pen allergy test. PrePen allergy testing is for the major determinant of penicillin metabolism and used as a skin-testing reagent to detect antibodies in people with rash and other skin or dermatology problems caused by penicillin allergy. It was recently approved by the FDA through Allerquest and ALK Abello. Allergy shots are not indicated for penicillin allergy, but other allergy relief may be available.
