Weather Changes Brings Suffering For Those With Allergies
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Two days of rain has brought a lot of relief from 100 degree heat. However, it’s also kept some North Texans inside their homes.
“My nose is running and sneezing,” says Joanna Blande from Irving “You got to pay for everything.” Blande says her head has been throbbing, her eyes hurt and her nose feels raw.
“It’s not uncommon that people come in with stuffy nose and diarrhea for example we’ve been seeing a lot of that lately,” explains Dr. Walter Gaman with Healthcare Associates of Irving. Dr. Gaman says it’s all because of the weather.
The rain stirs up all of the pollen that has settled and the damp weather creates mold, and that make some people feel bad.
Internist Dr. Alfred Johnson from Richardson echoes that, “They may have not been feeling too well before with the pollens. The moisture aggravates their condition and they get worse.”
If not treated Dr. Johnson says an allergy can easily turn into a sinus infection and that can turn into pneumonia.
He says the best way to treat it is antihistamines. If you have a fever then go see your doctor.
