SouthCoast Health Allergy Department: Pollen is Here. 101 on Allergies in Savannah

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Different plant species begin pollinating at different times of the year, with some trees starting as early as late January in our area. By late February, tree pollination here is in full swing, according to SouthCoast Health Allergy Department in Savannah.

For those who have developed an allergy to pollen, pollen can trigger sneezing, congestion, itching of the eyes and upper airway, and even chest tightness with shortness of breath.

Do you have such allergies? Determining whether allergies are playing a role in producing symptoms is best accomplished by visiting an allergist who is certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology
