Pollen and Hay Fever in Frankfort, KY

In the city of Frankfort, Kentucky, pollen allergies are a common concern, especially during certain seasons. The primary contributors to these allergies are varied, with different plants releasing their pollen at different times throughout the year. Understanding these patterns can help residents prepare for the pollen onslaught and manage their allergy symptoms more effectively.

Starting as early as February and extending through April, trees are the most significant source of pollen. The exact timing can depend on the weather. If the winter is mild, trees may begin pollinating sooner. Conversely, if the winter is colder and longer, this process may be delayed. Among the trees, oak and cedar are usually the first to pollinate, with their pollen filling the air as temperatures consistently stay above 50 degrees. Later, in April, pine, birch, and mulberry trees follow suit.

Interestingly, the specific trees that cause the most trouble can change from month to month. For instance, juniper bushes, along with elm and maple trees, have been identified as the main culprits during certain periods.

As the year progresses, the types of pollen that dominate the air change. In the summer, grass pollen becomes the predominant allergen, causing hay fever symptoms in sensitive individuals. As we transition into the cooler months of fall and winter, weed and mold allergens take the lead.

In summary, understanding the different types of pollen and their seasons in Frankfort, Kentucky, can provide a predictive pattern for allergy sufferers. While the exact timing and severity of pollen allergies can vary from year to year based on weather conditions and other factors, this general pattern holds true and serves as a useful guide for those impacted by these allergies.

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.
