Fall Allergies and What to Do About Them

Spring and summer flowers are giving way to fall foliage, so why you are still sneezing?

Autumn's nasal allergy triggers are different than summer's, but can still cause you to experience just as many symptoms as you do during the spring and summer. Ragweed is the most common allergen in the fall, but all weeds will pollinate in the fall and can be a problem.

Watch our previously recorded webinar now to learn more about fall nasal allergy triggers and treatments.
