What does an allergist do?

Find an allergist, Find relief...

Allergy is a reaction to a substance such as pet dander, mold, certain foods, or pollen. Antibodies in your body mistakenly identify the protein in the allergen as an invading enemy and take defensive action.

This reaction can be mild, or severe enough to require a trip to the emergency room.  What many people think of as seasonal allergies are commonly referred to as hay fever, while the medical term is “seasonal allergic rhinitis.”

In Florida, flowers and trees bloom longer than in colder climates, and continue producing pollen. Different allergen-producing plants at different times throughout the year.

Common Florida Allergens

Oak and pine season lasts from December through May. Grass pollen season extends from April to October. Weed season for ragweed, sorrel, dock, and dog fennel can extend from March through December.

Ragweed is found all over Florida and is a prime cause of allergies.  Wind-blown ragweed allergens travel for hundreds of miles. Just one plant produces more than one billion grains of pollen per season.

Mold thrives in damp, humid, and cool environments. Mold spreads easily indoors; it goes dormant in winter until temperatures warm again.
