Pollen and Hay Fever in Palmdale, CA

Pollen allergies, also known as hay fever, are a common cause of seasonal discomfort for many residents of Palmdale, California. Located in the Antelope Valley region, Palmdale's unique geographical setting contributes to a distinctive pollen profile.

The city's pollen season typically begins in the spring, often in late February or early March, and lasts until late fall. During this time, the city's vast array of native plant species release pollen into the air, affecting individuals with hay fever. The types of pollen that trigger allergies vary widely, but in Palmdale, three types are particularly prominent: grass, weed, and tree pollen.

Grass pollen, especially from Bermuda grass, ryegrass, and Kentucky bluegrass, which are commonly found in local lawns and parks, often peaks in late spring and early summer. While less common, some individuals also react to the pollen of desert-adapted grass species native to the surrounding areas.

Weed pollen, on the other hand, peaks in late summer and fall. Ragweed is a common trigger of weed pollen allergies and, while not native to California, it is present in Palmdale. Other significant sources of weed pollen include sagebrush, lamb's quarters, and Russian thistle.

Tree pollen is typically the first to appear in the year, often noticeable as early as February. Oak, cedar, and pine are common tree species in Palmdale, and they contribute significantly to the tree pollen counts. The high desert environment also supports a variety of native juniper and pinyon pine trees, both of which can produce allergenic pollen.

Living in Palmdale means experiencing the beauty of its diverse flora throughout the year. However, for those susceptible, it also means navigating the challenges of pollen allergies. Understanding the types of pollen and their respective seasons can help residents anticipate and manage their symptoms, leading to a more comfortable and enjoyable life in this beautiful desert city.

What is Wyndly?

Wyndly is the easiest and most convenient way to fix your allergies forever. As an online allergy practice, Wyndly offers at-home allergy testing and treatment. The main goal of Wyndly is to retrain the immune system to stop responding to allergens, providing lasting relief from allergies.

Here's how Wyndly works:

  1. Identify Allergy Triggers: The first step is to identify the allergy triggers. You can purchase an at-home allergy test from Wyndly, or if you have already done an allergy test elsewhere, you can share your existing test results. This allows the doctors at Wyndly to pinpoint which allergies need to be treated.
  2. Get Treated by a Real Doctor: Using medications that are similar to those used in allergy shots, a doctor creates a unique sublingual immunotherapy treatment plan to desensitize your immune system. This is done using FDA-approved sublingual tablets or clinically proven dosing for oral use.
  3. Live Better Without Symptoms: The prescriptions are shipped to your door, and the doctor works with you until you’re better. Wyndly offers regular online check-ins with US-licensed physicians and 24/7 availability for questions or concerns via text, email, or call.

The treatment plans are personalized based on your specific allergy triggers and aim to treat allergies at their source, rather than just relieving symptoms for a short period. Most people report improvement in as little as one month.

Wyndly Summer 2023 Pollen Report Methodology

For each city, Wyndly obtained monthly pollen PPMs (pollen grains per cubic meter) for each form (tree, grass, and weed) from February 2022 - May 2023. Data were obtained from Pollen Sense, LLC Automated Particulate Sensors (APS). These sensors automatically detect particulate matter collected from ambient air, and use a neural network algorithm to identify individual pollen species and calculate daily pollen counts.

Yearly averages are calculated by summing the three allergen averages per month of data for a total monthly PPM, summing all monthly total PPMs, then dividing by 12 (month count). Used for per-city average, state average, and total USA average. Season comparisons are done by summing the months of Spring (March, April, May) for 2023 and 2022. If the absolute of the (2023-2022)/2022 is ≤ 0.05, the years were about the same. Otherwise, the more PPM, the worse the season was.
