Count Igor Von Pollen sends his pollen armies to strike in the warm weather months, when kids are often playing outside. His favorite thing to do is to make people who have allergic rhinitis (hay fever) sneeze 10 times in a row.
Pollen comes from things that grow outdoors: trees, shrubs, flowers, weeds, and grass. Some pollen, though, like ragweed, causes more allergies than other pollens. Your doctor might give you some medicine to help your hay fever when there’s lots of pollen around.
During pollen season, people with pollen allergies should take a shower and wash their hair as soon as possible after coming in from outside.
