South Florida seems to have only one season: Summer. Although the temperatures drop in winter, South Florida rarely, if ever, experiences snow or freezing temperatures.
Unfortunately, this means South Florida’s allergy season lasts much longer than it does elsewhere in the country.
Accordingly to Michael Wein, M.D., a professor at Florida State University School of Medicine, there are 5 major pollen seasons in South Florida. They are:
- Oak and Pine Pollen: December – May
- Other Tree Pollen: October – November
- Grass Pollen: April – October
- Weed Pollen: May – December
- Minor Weed Pollen: March – July
Allergy testing is the best way to determine what type of allergy you have. Make an appointment with Health Circle to get your allergies tested.
