Seasonal allergic rhinitis and asthma are prevalent in the months of August to October when the pollen season is at its peak. Pollen from the Ambrosia species of ragweed is airborne in these months and commonly affects sensitive adults and kids. Known symptoms include itching, watery and red eyes, runny nose, difficulty in breathing, coughing and wheezing in asthmatic persons.
As a precaution, try to stay indoors and take anti-histamines or your prescribed anti-allergy medicines. Ragweed pollen count is highest between 5am -10am, on hot, dry, windy days. So try to skip any outdoor activity in the mornings if you are sensitive to allergens.
Pollen allergy can be induced even if you're living in major cities as the ragweeds grow everywhere in the country, even in backyards. Visit a doctor if symptoms become worse, or develop into other respiratory difficulties. If you have to go outdoors in these months or do yard work, wear protective gear like shades that cover your eyes or wear a medical mask specific to keeping you from breathing in pollen whilst taking anti-allergy medicines in advance.
It would be beneficial if you have private health insurance in Croatia that would provide immediate treatment when having allergic attacks. Hospitals are usually open 24 hours a day if you need immediate medical treatment.
