Allergy season has been worse than usual this year for many people across the U.S. due to dry spells and warm weather. Eugene, Oregon, is one region that especially suffered as a result of arid weather. However, a few recent storms have finally brought relief to residents in the area, according to The Register-Guard.
Eugene saw its highest pollen count this season with 532 grains of grass pollen per square inch, which meant plenty of sneezing and itchy eyes for allergy sufferers. Kraig Jacobson, medical director of the Allergy and Asthma Research Group, which is the research arm of Oregon Allergy Associates in Eugene, told the news source that the rain will help allergy sufferers finally find relief.
Individuals who suffer from seasonal allergies may want to consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove irritating particles from the atmosphere that cause coughing, sneezing and sniffling.
The IQ HealthPro Plus system is efficient at removing ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size from up to 900 square feet of space. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate dust, pollen and pet dander from the air.
