Struggling With Winter Allergies

December 22, 2009, 5:01 PM by Kelli Grant

Struggling With Winter Allergies
Spring and summer are not the only seasons that can bring misery to allergy sufferers. For some people, this time of year can also be a struggle.

While we talk about allergy season when there's a lot of pollen outside, the winter is nothing to sneeze at. Dust, mold and pets can make things unbearable.

A Christmas tree could also be a big culprit for all that itching and sneezing. Ornaments are often dusty and within days, trees will send mold spores into the air.

"As the Christmas tree decays, you're going to get a higher concentration of mold released by that Christmas tree into the home," Dr. Sebastian Lighvani said.

Even without a tree, allergies can flare when everyone spends more time inside. But there are some things you can do. Humidity is a breeding ground for mold and mites. So use a de-humidifier, and an exhaust fan in the kitchen and bathroom.

And because of the colder weather, your pets may be indoors more. So if you have them, keep them and their dander out of the bedroom.
