In brief

The pollen season 2022 has ended.

The amount of allergenic fungal spores in the air is limited.

If respiratory allergy problems still occur at this time of year, allergy to dust mites and other non-seasonal allergens should be considered.

Good to know

  • A few useful recommendations: avoid outdoor activities, wear sun glasses, do not dry linen outside, rinse your nose regularly, wash your hair before going to sleep.
  • Typical allergy symptoms such as runny nose, cough or shortness of breath (in case of asthma) can easily be mistaken for a cold, flu or coronavirus infection. However, fever and body aches should be given special attention as they might be caused by viral infection. It is recommended to call your general practitioner in case of doubt.
  • The standardized pollen detection technique allows retrospective measurement of the levels from samples taken the day before. Samples are analyzed manually during the working days by optical microscopy.
