Warm Winter Weather Prolongs Mold Allergy Season
Posted by Craig on Sunday, January 07, 2007
WEHT NEWs 25 from Evansville, IN reports that rising winter temperatures are causing an increase in allergy problems.

Doctor Jason White from the Allergy and Asthma Care Center in Evansville has had more allergy patients this winter than any other in the past.

Dr. White says,"I think we've seen a milder winter now than the last couple of years. This is one of the busiest winters I've had since in Evansville and I think people are still feeling the effects of the allergy season. The mold is still a problem.

"The mold counts right now are very high. You got warm weather, lots of rain, lots of decaying plants out there, mold counts are high, and people are feeling it out there.

"It's soil mold, its mold that in the grass, and mold that is grown in the ditches."

Dr. White says there are some things you can do to help:

1. Wash your hands, face, and clothes when you come in from outside.

2. Change your air filters in your furnaces.

3. Keep the windows in your car and home closed so you don't let any outside mold in.

Dr. White concludes, "The outdoor allergies are more of a problem this time of year with this wonderful weather rather than having it freezing out."
