Our daily lives have changed dramatically these last couple months, but one thing that has stayed the same…Texas allergies. From pollen, grass to blooming flowers, step outside and you’ll find yourself sneezing or itching your eyes. 


Allergy season in Texas can be brutal for people, especially asthmatics. In Texas, asthma affects roughly 1 in 13 adults and 1 in 11 children. In 2014, this represented 1.4 million Texans aged 18 years or older and 617,000 children according to the Texas Department of State Health Services.
