Each spring, fall and summer trees release pollen. This is when pollen allergy takes its toll.
The job of pollen is to fertilize other plants, but quite often pollen winds up entering our noses and throats, making our lives difficult if not simply miserable. To make matters worse, remedies pollen is practically inescapable.
Even if we seal off our houses, pollen will still find its way.
Moving to Nome, Alaska is not an option. Nor is going to the Oregon Coast likely to get you through the whole Central Oregon season and the pollen on the coast will catch up with you.
Interestingly, plants with bright colored flowers usually dont bother pollen allergy sufferers.
It is the plain looking trees and plants that cause the greatest allergy symptoms.
Generally, the trees that are most likely to produce pollen allergy in the Western.S. Are: Oak, Ash, Elm, Cottonwood, Olive, Alder and Maple. . Specifically, here in Central Oregon, Juniper, Mountain asthma Cedar and Pine are significantly problematic.
Juniper and Cedar pollen causes asthma, hayfever and allergic conjunctivitis usually starting in late February or March and lasting until April or May. . Often people develop contact skin reactions with hives or itchy rashes in early February. . These pollens have been observed to travel great distances of 200 km according to wind patterns.
Juniper pollen may be unique in causing allergic rhinitis in patients who have no other sensitivities.
A possible explanation may lie in the carbohydrate nature of the main allergen of the mountain Juniper pollen, which may facilitate allergen transport through the respiratory tract mucosa and subsequent sensitization. It has further been observed that after a couple of years of moderate exposure, even the least allergic person will develop Juniper allergy.
