Pollen and Hay Fever in Allen, TX

In Allen, Texas, pollen allergies and hay fever follow a distinct seasonal pattern due to the variety of vegetation that contributes to pollen production.

The cycle begins from November to February, when Mountain Cedar becomes the primary source of allergens. Known for their small, light pollen that can travel hundreds of miles, Mountain Cedars are prevalent in Central Texas, making this time of year particularly challenging for those with allergies.

As the Mountain Cedar season wraps up in May, a new trio of allergens - Elm, Ash, and Mulberry - come into play from January to May. These trees produce pollen that can lead to a variety of symptoms, including sneezing, wheezing, and asthma-like symptoms.

In the heart of spring, from March to May, Oak and Pecan tree pollens join the mix, along with pollen from grasses such as Bermuda, Johnson, and Kentucky bluegrass. As grasses are abundant in the region, this time of year can be particularly irritating for anyone sensitive to grass pollen, with symptoms extending beyond the typical runny nose and watery eyes to include sore throats and additional asthma-like symptoms.

Interestingly, the hot summer months of June and July offer a brief respite. During this time, most common sources of allergies cease their pollen production, leading to a significant drop in pollen counts.

However, the respite is short-lived. In August, ragweed makes its appearance and continues to be a significant allergen until November. Ragweed, a soft-stemmed, flowering weed, is populous in the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas and is particularly plentiful in the southwestern U.S. The ragweed season is known for causing runny noses, sneezing, itchy eyes, and at its worst, asthma flares.

As the ragweed season tapers off in November, the Mountain Cedar comes back into bloom, marking the start of another cycle of pollen allergies in Texas. Understanding this seasonal pattern can help individuals in Allen, Texas, better anticipate and manage their pollen allergies and hay fever, even though we are not discussing treatments or remedies in this context.

Keep in mind that while these are the typical patterns, individual experiences with allergies can vary based on personal sensitivity and specific weather conditions each year.

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.
