So, what’s the deal with rainy days and allergies?

Rainfall can be a double-edged sword for allergy sufferers. On one hand, it can wash away airborne allergens like pollen, offering temporary relief. But on the other hand, it creates the perfect conditions for mold to thrive.

Mold loves moisture, and rainy weather provides it in abundance. If you’re allergic to mold, you might find that rainy days make your symptoms worse. Rain can disturb outdoor mold colonies, releasing spores into the air. Plus, moisture seeping into indoor spaces can promote mold growth indoors, making your allergies even worse.

And let’s not forget about the wind. In Texas, rain often comes with strong winds that can stir up pollen and dust, making allergy symptoms even more unbearable.

So, does rain really help with allergies? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t cut and dry. If you’re struggling with persistent symptoms, regardless of whether or not it’s raining, it’s time to get allergy tested.

At AENT, our providers can identify your specific triggers, whether it’s pollen, dust mites or mold. Schedule a consultation with us today, and let’s find a solution together.

Rain or shine, relief is within reach!
