Allergies Entering Peak Season

ST. CLOUD — It’s prime season for allergies right now.

Dr. Stephen Leslie is an Allergy Specialist at CentraCare Health. He says the allergy season is at its height around the start of September.

Dr. Leslie says the dry conditions don’t help because the spores and pollen can travel through the air more easily than if conditions are wet.

The main culprit right now is ragweed, but Dr. Leslie says mold is also present into the fall.

Leslie says you can try over-the-county allergy medications first, but if your allergies get too bad, you may have to see your doctor.

Allergy conditions will improve once we get the first frost of the season.
