August to November is ragweed season! Many patients ask me around this time of year: Why am I getting a Cold in the middle of Summer?! Well, most people are actually having allergy symptoms from the ragweed, but if untreated it can turn into a sinus infection. So, get back on those nasal sprays, medications, and irrigations if you have not been using them consistently! Reconnect with your allergist or ENT if you have one! And make sure this Ragweed season does not keep you inside during this beautiful time of year!
