Changes in pollen and spore counts will affect how allergy sufferers feel. Mayo Clinic offers daily reports of the most current pollen and spore counts in downtown Rochester. Air-sampling equipment collects the airborne pollen and spores to aid in the diagnosis, treatment and management of allergic diseases. This service is offered from the beginning of the growing season to the end of the growing season, roughly the beginning of April to the end of October.
Seasonal allergic symptoms may include sneezing, itchy watery eyes, nasal congestion, runny, itchy nose, (allergic rhinitis) or asthma symptoms such as wheezing, cough, and chest tightness (asthma). These symptoms may become worse with increased levels of pollen and spores.
If you feel you are allergic or experiencing these symptoms and you would like to make an appointment with an allergist for diagnosis and treatment, please see Appointments.
