For most of those in the Midwest, ragweed season is here! It actually started last week, will peak around Labor Day Weekend, and gradually decline for the rest of September. There is no detectable ragweed by the time October rolls around.
Tips to decrease exposure to ragweed:
Keep windows closed
Wash your hair/bathe nightly
Please refer to our previous posts regarding recommendations for use of OTC allergy medications.
This link is a detailed post about ragweed previously posted last year. https://www.parkallergy.com/ragweed-facts-you-need-to-know/

Effective immediately, ALL patients entering Park Allergy Center, whether for an appointment, treatment, or allergy injection, will be required to wear a facial mask (cloth facial coverings acceptable). All patients are asked to bring and use their own mask as our supply is almost exhausted. Following is a link to the latest CDC recommendation regarding the use of cloth facial masks in public. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html
As always, thank you for your understanding and trust in Park Allergy Center.
Effective immediately, administration of allergy injections will be limited to asthmatics and patients with stinging insect allergies.
All non-urgent, in-office appointments will be rescheduled either to a later date or to a Telemedicine appointment.
We feel this new policy achieves the best balance of honoring Governor Whitmer’s Stay-At-Home order while continuing to provide care for those most at risk.
