Pollen causes big headaches

March 5, 2004


Albany-- Pollen is a problem in South Georgia right now, and so are the headaches that come with it. Allergist Dr. Dennis Robinson at Allergy and Asthma Clinic of Georgia says their business has picked up due to the pollen count.

But the pollen on your car does not affect your allergies. "It's mostly pine pollen and pine is a big large pollen so it's easy to see with a naked eye but at the same time that pollen is putting out," Dr. Robinson said. "We also have the oak and the birch, the elm and the maple also being out there too."

Dr. Robinson says Claritin D, an over the counter pill, is best to take for your allergies. Be sure to read the directions before you take any medication.
