Pollen Levels for Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Weed - Sagebrush, Sheep Sorrel & Ragweed

 

WILDFIRE SMOKE IN THE AREA

Smoke is being detected in the Pikes Peak region from the fire located in Southern Colorado. Smoke and grass fires contain particles that can irritate eyes, throat and lungs and can worsen symptoms for those who have pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, and COPD.

You may be experiencing the following symptoms:

Difficulty breathing normally
Cough with or without mucus
Chest discomfort
Wheezing and shortness of breath
Seasonal allergies and nasal or eye symptoms made worse by smoke

We recommend you take the following precautions during this time:
Take medications as prescribed and use a rescue inhaler if needed. DO NOT take more medication to alleviate symptoms
Consider leaving the area for a short time if the smoke is making you sick
Stay indoors as much as possible and close windows if you can.
Limit or eliminate outdoor activity until the air clears.
Use your air conditioning both inside your home and car to help filter the air

If you are experiencing increased symptoms, contact our office immediately to decide if you need to be seen.
