Pollen and Hay Fever in College Station, TX

Pollen allergies, often referred to as hay fever, are a common concern for residents of College Station, Texas. The local flora, combined with the city's climatic conditions, lead to a year-round dance of different pollens that can trigger allergic reactions.

From November to February, mountain cedar pollen is particularly prevalent. This allergen is a challenge to avoid due to the light, small nature of the pollen, which can travel hundreds of miles. Exposure to mountain cedar pollen can lead to itchy, watery eyes, as well as a runny or stuffy nose and sneezing.

As mountain cedar season begins to fade, a trio of new allergens emerges from January to May: elm, ash, and mulberry. The pollen from these trees can cause symptoms such as sneezing, wheezing, and even asthma-like symptoms.

Springtime, from March to May, ushers in the season for oak and pecan tree pollen, along with pollen from grasses like Bermuda, Johnson, and Kentucky bluegrass. The plentiful grasses can make this time of year particularly irritating for those sensitive to grass pollen, with symptoms extending to a sore throat and more asthma-like symptoms.

A brief respite occurs in the summer months of June and July. The blistering heat leads to a drop in pollen count, providing some allergy relief as most common sources of allergies stop producing pollen.

However, this relief is short-lived. August brings the arrival of a notorious allergy culprit: ragweed. This soft-stemmed, flowering weed, populous in the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas, begins its pollination in August and continues through November. Ragweed season can cause runny noses, sneezing, itchy eyes, and, in severe cases, asthma flares.

With the tapering off of ragweed season in November, the cycle begins anew with the return of mountain cedar. This rotation of different pollens throughout the year presents an ongoing challenge to residents of College Station, Texas, as they navigate the landscape of pollen allergies and hay fever.

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.
