Tree pollen can also trigger other medical conditions such as asthma, making breathing difficult and leading to coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
While these symptoms may seem mild at first, over time they can cause progressive impairment of quality of life, work and sleep. More severe reactions may occur in people with asthma and other respiratory problems.
In addition to the above symptoms, some of our patients report feeling as if they have the flu for months and just feel physically drained. Tree pollen allergies are also described like a bad cold that just won’t go away. Some patients will experience benefits with traditional allergy medications, while other patients may require allergy shots for tree pollen. See our blog, Combat Pollen Season for additional information.
