Pollen and Hay Fever in Richardson, TX

Pollen allergies, often referred to as hay fever, are a common concern for residents of Richardson, Texas. The issue arises when our immune system overreacts to pollen, triggering symptoms such as sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, and a runny or stuffy nose.

Pollen in Richardson mainly comes from three sources: trees, grass, and weeds. Each of these sources has a particular time of the year when they release the majority of their pollen, creating a year-round cycle of different types of pollen allergies.

Starting in November and lasting through February, Mountain Cedar trees release their pollen. This pollen can travel hundreds of miles, making it difficult to avoid for those sensitive to it. Right as the Mountain Cedar season wraps up, from January to May, residents get hit with a trio of new allergens: Elm, Ash, and Mulberry trees.

Springtime in Richardson, from March to May, introduces Oak and Pecan tree pollen, as well as pollen from grasses, such as Bermuda, Johnson, and Kentucky bluegrass. Because grasses are so plentiful, this can be a particularly irritating time of year for anyone sensitive to grass pollen.

June and July offer a brief respite from pollen allergies. The blistering summer heat causes the most common sources of allergies to stop producing pollen, leading to a drop in pollen counts.

However, the relief is short-lived. In August, a new and notorious allergy culprit arrives on the scene: Ragweed. This soft-stemmed, flowering weed is populous in the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas, and it is particularly plentiful in the southwestern U.S.

including Richardson. Ragweed season lasts until November, just in time for the Mountain Cedar to come back into bloom and the cycle of pollen allergies to restart.

Understanding the types of pollen and their seasons can help residents of Richardson be better prepared for the changes in the allergy landscape throughout the 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.
