Sacramento residents suffering from strong winds, allergies

Many people across the country are already suffering from allergies, and in Sacramento, the situation is no different. Recently, gusty winds hit the California capital, spreading around pollen that had already fallen from the trees. As a result, more people are sniffling and sneezing with no relief in sight, according to the Sacramento Bee.

"I thought we were going to get totally annihilated," local allergist Bradley Chipps told the news source. "This year's not quite as frenetic as I thought, but there's still the possibility it could get worse."

Although medication can be used to treat allergies, some patients have to resort to monthly shots to control their symptoms.

Individuals who are looking for a natural way to relieve their allergies indoors may want to consider purchasing an air purifier with a HEPA filter. This device can remove allergens from the air.

The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier may be especially helpful for those who are seeking relief from particles, such as pollen, dust and mold. Its HyperHEPA filter is designed to trap allergens less than 0.3 microns in size.
