Some Helpful Advice About Allergies From ABC Montana

Posted: Updated:

 

 According to cdc.gov, more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. Their website says they are caused by everyday exposures to agents such as dust mites, cat dander, and pollens, but we are here to help.

ABC Montana's Katie Owen tells us what you can do to wipe out those sneezes.

Staff accountant, Karson Rosander, moved to Billings 8 years ago, and says he's impacted from allergies year round. He tells us, "I take allergy medication several times. Well, three times a day, and I come in and get shots weekly."

Dr. Laura Moore says the fall season is seeing a lot of mold and wheat allergies at the clinic. Also that, "This time of year, as I mentioned, weeds and mold are very common, but we also, as it gets colder, we go inside more and then you start and get more of the year round allergens like your dust allergies."

Dr. Moore says medications take about 30 minutes to get into your system, so she advises you to make sure to take your medication at least a half an hour before going outside for fall yard work.  She also recommends nasal spray, eye drops, and allergy shots during this season.
