The bacteria are spread person-to-person through contact with respiratory secretions such as mucus or saliva (coughing or sneezing). The main illness is known as Pneumococcal Pneumonia (pneumonia); however, complications such as meningitis and blood infections may also occur.

    Approximately 7.6% of the US Population has some form of asthma.  Regionally, nearly 70,000 people in the 20-county WTOC viewing area suffer from this chronic condition.  For many asthmatics, physical activity can trigger an attack.  This event is known as exercise-induced asthma.  For most people, however, asthma is an allergic disease.  As with other allergies, those with a family history of the condition are more likely to develop it.

    It is common to associate seasonal allergies with Spring.  As the temperatures begin to warm, new plants bloom, and the world seems green again. That new growth often gets the blame for itchy eyes and “hay fever.”  Other plants, however, have different growing seasons, and some that trigger allergies which flourish during alternate seasons.  Moreover, many common allergens aren’t plant-based at all.

    Treatment for Spring Seasonal Allergies

    Spring is just around the corner, and that likely means your family is about to be spending a lot of time outside on the soccer and baseball fields, at the park, and on the beach.  Spring brings beautiful weather, and with it, a variety of allergens.  In the south, tree pollen season is roughly February through May, with pollens from oak, cedar, and pecan trees being the worst allergy triggers.
