Hayride Could Be The Trigger For Seasonal Allergy

DETROIT (WWJ) – Pumpkins, hay bales and cornstalks are a great way to get into the fall spirit – but not for people with certain allergies.

If you’re allergic to ragweed, reports WWJ Health Reporter Sean Lee, you may be finally breathing a sigh of relief as we head into fall, but if you have mold allergies, your misery may be getting started.

Doctor Devang Doshi is a pediatric allergist with Beaumont Children’s Hospital.

Doshi says either an over-the-counter or prescription medication can help manage mold symptoms, but check with your doctor first.

And if you just can’t resist a jump in the leaves or a that haunted hay-ride, don’t forget to shower and change clothes once the fun is done to reduce your exposure.
