Allergists say the Lowcountry is suffering from high pollen counts
Charleston Allergy and Asthma have announced the tri-county area is experiencing high pollen counts.
According to the board-certified allergy practice, the pollen count is based on a 0-12 scale, with 12 being very high.
According to the Charleston Allergy and Asthma team, the tri-county area is between ‘high’ and ‘very high’ range.
“The main contributors to the current pollen count are the trees,” said Andrew Davidson, MD, board-certified allergist. “Pine, cedar, pecan, hickory, alder and maple trees are all in the middle of pollination, which is bad news for people who suffer from seasonal allergies.”
The allergy practice is one of only three certified pollen-counting stations in South Carolina.
