Last week’s rain brought temporary relief from the summer heat, but it also brought hassles for people with allergies. Most people think because rain has stopped and the hot, dry weather pattern is back, mold wouldn’t be a problem. The mold may go down after the rain, but it’s not going away. Some drought conditions can induce some species of mold to bloom.If you need relief, doctors suggest trying over the counter medication first, then if they don’t work, try prescription drugs or nasal sprays. Lastly, allergy shots can retrain your immune system to stop reacting to the things that it thought you were allergic to.
