Did you know that more than 50 million Americans have seasonal allergies, allergy-related illnesses, or asthma? According to Dilley, that’s allergy and asthma.
Many people continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and try to find ways to deal with their condition.

Ambrosia usually pollinates from August to early November, with September and October being the typical peak months.
If you’re having problems with your allergies, Dilley Allergy and Asthma can review specific therapies and suggest adjustments for the fall season.
Tips to be followed
Halloween + food allergies
For food allergy sufferers, Dilley Allergy and Asthma mentioned that Halloween can be a stressful time to avoid food allergens.
Several food allergy safety tips involve bringing epinephrine, which you should always have with you. If you have food allergies, avoid eating treats on the go and wait until you get home to avoid confusing sweets that may contain food allergens.
Parents should check candy and labels. If you are going to a party, remember to bring extra goodies and only eat packaged and labeled goodies.
If you don’t want to bother handing out candy and food on Halloween, encourage your neighbors to offer non-food treats that include Halloween-themed pencils, glowing necklaces or bracelets, or Halloween trinkets (spiders, rings, temporary tattoos) may include) for trick or treating.
Allergy to bees
In the fall, stinging insects can be more aggressive, and if you’ve had a severe reaction to a sting from a bee, wasp, yellow jacket, or fire ant, Dilley Allergy and Asthma offers immunotherapy that can desensitize you to these insects.
Dilley Allergy and Asthma says the treatment is effective and cures more than 95% of patients.
Mountain cedar season
Now is a good time to prepare for the mountain cedar season, which starts in December and ends in February in most regions.
The health and wellness experts will help you prepare for the mountain cedar season and give you a preventative regimen to make the season an even more enjoyable experience.
According to Dilley Allergy and Asthma, allergy immunotherapy is the most effective treatment for all allergens (pollen, mold, house dust mites, cats, dogs) and insect allergies.
