Be Aware of Triggers in Your Home Causing Winter Allergies
OMAHA, NEB. – Did you know allergies occur in the winter too? When the weather is cold outside, spending more time indoors can trigger congestion issues – especially when the furnace kicks on at home.
"Always consult your physician before taking any medication, said Kevin Murphy, M.D., allergist at Boys Town National Research Hospital. “Allergies can be triggered at any time and at any age, so it is possible that prolonged cold-like symptoms could be an allergy."
For questions or concerns about allergies, contact an allergist at Boys Town National Research Hospital.
