Pollen and Hay Fever in Waco, TX

Nestled in the heart of Texas, Waco is a charming city that boasts an abundance of natural beauty. However, for those with pollen allergies, this idyllic setting can be a double-edged sword, especially during hay fever season.

Pollen allergies, commonly known as hay fever, are the body's response to airborne pollen particles from trees, grasses, and weeds. In Waco, Texas, the types of pollen that are prevalent vary by season.

Springtime in Waco is when tree pollen is at its peak. Oak, cedar, and pine are among the trees that contribute to the high pollen counts. The blossoms and new leaves release pollen into the air, and for those sensitive to tree pollen, this can trigger allergy symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes.

As spring transitions into summer, grass pollen takes center stage. Bermuda and Johnson grasses are common in Waco and release large amounts of pollen. This period is particularly challenging for individuals who enjoy spending time outdoors, as the grass pollen levels can be quite high, especially on warm, windy days.

In the late summer and early fall, weed pollen, especially from ragweed, becomes the main allergen. Ragweed is notorious for causing hay fever symptoms and thrives in the climate of Waco. The lightweight pollen from ragweed can travel for miles, making it nearly impossible to avoid.

It’s important to note that Waco's weather patterns can also impact pollen levels. For instance, a rainy spring can lead to increased mold spores, which can exacerbate pollen allergies. On the other hand, rainfall can also wash pollen out of the air, providing temporary relief.

Being informed about the types of pollen and the seasons they are most prevalent in Waco, Texas, helps individuals to better understand what triggers their allergies and to plan accordingly for outdoor activities.

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.
