This is what most cars, patios, and streets in the ArkLaMiss look like. Covered in a yellow dust--- and when that dust blows it can get in your body and cause your cells to panic. Dr. Richard Pillsbury said, “Makes your eyes water, makes them itch, makes your nose run, sneezing, your congested, some people get whelps on your bodies.” So what can you do? Dr. Pillsbury specializes in the ears, nose and throat—he says the best thing is to grab an over the counter anti histamine. Medicine like Zyrtec, Benadryl and Claritin will block pollen from attacking your body. But there’s also some preventative measures you can take that will help. “For the pollens outside, stay in the house, run AC, can cut down on amount.” Also don’t hang your clothes to dry outside, buy an allergy air filter for your home, keep your car windows up and try not to get outside when pollen is the worst—around the hours of 5 am and 10 am. “There’s a pollen forecast and a lot of times pollen is off the chart. We’re having an incredibly bad pollen season right now.” Dr. Pillsbury says allergy season usually extends into early august. But the good news is the yellow pollen should only stick around for another week or so.
