What Is a Local Pollen Count?
Have you been diagnosed with seasonal allergies by your allergy doctor? If so, then knowing about and monitoring local pollen counts can be important for managing your condition and promoting your comfort.
A local pollen count is an estimate of expected pollen levels in a specific area. These estimates are typically updated daily and calculated using a combination of current pollen reports and historical pollen indexes. Checking the pollen count each day can alert you to whether you should take or increase your allergy medication before going outdoors. For this reason, allergists often advise their patients to keep track of local pollen counts.
