Feeling fall allergies


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The chance of frost could be good news for allergy sufferers, but fall allergies can still be a challenge. Doctor Joshua Ordway with Premier Health Net says Texas actually has some of the worst pollen counts right now.

Ragweed is the main trigger for fall allergies in the Dayton region. It reaches its peak in mid-September and causes seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever in up to 23 million Americans.

Dr. Ordway talks about the different ways to avoid the irritant and the OTC medications that can help reduce symptoms.
