Pollen and Hay Fever in Provo, UT

Pollen allergies, also known as hay fever, are a common concern for residents of Provo, Utah. Pollen, a fine powder released by plants during their reproductive cycle, triggers these allergies. In Utah, pollen originates primarily from grasses, trees, and weeds, each releasing pollen at different times of the year, leading to seasonal allergies.

The allergy season in Provo typically commences in early spring, usually around February. The cold Utah winter gives way to spring, triggering the release of tree pollen and marking the onset of hay fever for many. Common tree pollens include those from maple, birch, poplar, juniper, and mesquite trees.

As we move into summer, the dominant pollen shifts from trees to grasses. Bermuda grass, Timothy grass, wild oat, orchard grass, and Kentucky bluegrass are among the common grasses in Utah that cause pollen allergies during the summer months.

The allergy season peaks in April, May, and September, when the pollen count is at its highest. These high pollen counts can pose a significant challenge to individuals with pollen allergies, potentially leading to flare-ups of symptoms.

By fall, the primary allergenic pollens come from weeds, with ragweed, pigweed, sagebrush, and tumbleweed being common culprits. The allergy season generally concludes with the arrival of the first winter frost, offering a welcome respite to allergy sufferers.

However, it's important to note that despite the seasonal nature of these allergies, individuals can experience symptoms at any time of the year. Indoor allergens, although not directly related to pollen, can continue to cause issues during the winter months.

Remember, the exact timing and severity of pollen allergies can vary from year to year, depending on a variety of factors including weather patterns and individual sensitivity. By understanding the types of pollen and the seasons, individuals can better anticipate and manage their symptoms.

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.
