The humidity in North Texas is often so heavy that the patients who never had allergies suddenly develop symptoms or even allergic asthma in their 50s or 60s.

This is something one may not even see in other parts of the country, let alone in some parts of the world.

Five Texas cities ranked within the top 20 metropolitan areas having high pollen counts in the Asthma Capitals 2018 Report by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. McAllen and San Antonio took the top two spots — Austin was No. 13.

Patricia Sanchez, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Fort Worth, says that winds blowing from the south, southeast and southwest bring in pollen from central Texas.

These winds may pick up tree pollen, which is just one of the causes of allergies. According to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology, mold, animal dander, dust, food, latex, insect stings, medications and drugs also lead to runny noses and watery eyes for countless people.

Pollen produced by grass and hickory, red and white oak, juniper and pecan trees are particularly pesky in the summertime. However, the level of a particular tree pollen is difficult to predict.

Allergy and Asthma Clinic serves in Austin, TX and Round Rock, TX and offers the Allergies and Asthma treatment to adult and pediatric patients.

Allergy skin tests or blood tests can help patients discover what’s causing their allergies. The skin test takes about 15 to 20 minutes to administer at an allergist’s office and will show what grasses, trees, pollens and foods may be causing an allergic reaction.

It is recommended to get an allregy test to mitigate the risks related to allregies during the summer season.
