Navigating Allergy Season in Tennessee


As Tennessee gears up for allergy season, it’s crucial to understand the ins and outs of managing allergies in the state. From peak seasons to common triggers and proactive measures, here’s what you need to know to stay ahead of allergy symptoms.


Allergies can turn even the simplest encounters with everyday substances into uncomfortable experiences. From pollen to pet dander, allergens trigger the immune system, leading to a cascade of symptoms like sneezing, itching, and more severe reactions in sensitive individuals.

Peak Allergy Seasons in Tennessee

Tennessee’s allergy season typically unfolds in stages, with different allergens peaking at various times throughout the year. Tree pollen kicks things off in April and May, followed by grass pollen in May and June, and weed pollen, particularly ragweed, in August and September. Mold, a year-round culprit, becomes more prevalent during warm and humid weather.

Trees like oak and hickory, grasses such as Timothy and Bermuda, and weeds like ragweed dominate the allergy scene in Tennessee. Additionally, mold thrives in damp environments, indoors and out, especially during periods of high humidity.

Considering allergy testing? Skin tests and blood tests are common methods used to identify allergens and develop personalized treatment plans.
