Spring has arrived. Good weather, longer days, blossoming flowers, outdoor fun, fresher and more colourful clothes and general happiness came with it, but also did allergies.
This time of year many of us are affected by spring allergies. The level of allergies inland is much higher than here in the coast, so it is unlikely that your visit to Costa del Sol gets spoilt because of them. In fact many doctors recommend their patients to go on holiday to the coast during the spring.
In Malaga, even if less affected than other parts of Spain, the most common allergies are to olive tree, grass and pine pollen.
As you know Andalusia is one of the regions with more olive trees in the world. In the Malaga area there are less olive trees than in Jaen or Córdoba, but the number is still large. Its pollen is in the atmosphere mainly in April, May and June, reaching its higher level the first fortnight of May.
Grass also causes a lot of problems to people with allergies around Europe. Its pollen is present in the Malaga atmosphere mainly in spring and beginning of summer, reaching its peak point in May and early June.
Regarding pines most allergists confirm pines do not produce many allergies though their high amount of pollen is present in our air from February to June.
Doctors claim that prevention is key to fight against allergies, so in order to help you we would like to share a few tips with you:
- Close your windows and put the air conditioning on.
- Stay indoors as much as possible on windy days and when the level of pollen in the air is higher.
- Wear sunglasses.
- Eat products high in Omega3.
- Avoid doing activities outdoors before 10 A.M and from 7 P.M to 10 P.M as these times are the ones where the level of pollen is higher.
- Visit a Spa regularly, its warm and humid environment is really good for asthma.
