Allergies : Ragweed season - greatest allergy threats, by month - Brief Article



http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0HFI/is_9_51/ai_65859440


The year's biggest blowout did not occur at Pebble Beach in June--it takes place in September, as ragweed season peaks and millions of golfers reach for their hankies. Ragweed affects 85 percent of the nation's 70 million allergy sufferers. Experts at the American College of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology predict a "very, very bad" ragweed season this year.

To minimize damage, Dr. Ira Finegold, chief of allergy at St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital in New York, advises you to first check with an allergist to find out exactly what you're allergic to. If it's ragweed, begin taking your allergy medications one or two weeks ahead of the start of the season in your area.
