Get Over Fall-Time Ragweed Allergies
During the months of mid-August and early September ragweed hits its peak and wreaks havoc on allergy-sufferers, but it’s effects can be felt earlier in July and on into October. Ragweed is part of the daisy family of plants and is widespread across the United States but most prevalent in the East and Midwest. Each plant can produce up to a million grains of pollen each day. Ragweed pollen is known to travel up to 400 miles on the wind—so there’s no real escaping it.
