Pollen and Hay Fever in San Antonio, TX

In the vibrant city of San Antonio, Texas, the changing of the seasons often comes with the familiar symptoms of pollen allergies, also known as hay fever. While these allergies are a common occurrence for many, understanding the types of pollen and the seasons can help individuals anticipate and navigate through this often challenging time of the year.

San Antonio, with its diverse vegetation, experiences different types of pollen throughout the year. Oak, cedar, and ragweed are the primary contributors to pollen allergies in the city.

Oak pollen, most abundant in the spring, often turns cars and sidewalks a dusty yellow. This pollen is particularly potent, causing sneezing, itchy eyes, and other discomforts to those with sensitivities. The oak trees in San Antonio, from the majestic live oaks to the towering red oaks, are the major culprits during this season.

In contrast, Mountain Cedar, despite its name, is actually a type of juniper. This tree sheds its pollen in the winter months, typically from December through February. Its pollen grains, though fewer in number compared to oak, are just as troublesome to allergy sufferers. The airborne cedar pollen often triggers an allergic response, leading to what locals call "cedar fever.",Lastly, ragweed, a common plant across North America, releases its pollen in the late summer and early fall. It's a significant contributor to hay fever symptoms. Despite each plant being small and unassuming, a single ragweed plant can produce up to a billion grains of pollen each season, filling the air with potential allergens.

The unique blend of vegetation in San Antonio creates a year-round pollen season, with different plants taking center stage at different times. Understanding the types of pollen and their respective seasons can provide a sense of control in dealing with pollen allergies. Though it doesn't offer a solution, it allows individuals to anticipate and prepare for the challenges ahead.

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.
