Unusual Allergy Reactions Due to Summer Rain



    If your allergies seem out of control, you're not alone.

    Tree pollen is the biggest problem right now in the Metroplex, and that has a lot of North Texans sneezing and sniffling.

    But, there's another culprit we normally don't have to deal with in the summer -- rain.

    "Mold is always a problem when there's a lot of rain, both indoor and outdoor mold. When the humidity goes up both the home and the outdoor environment increases in humidity and that's a great way for mold spores to pollinate and move out," said Dr. Mudita Shah, with Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital.

    Things are expected to get a bit worse before improving when Ragweed starts cranking up in just a few weeks.
