Does your family get a real Christmas tree? Do you start to have allergy and asthma symptoms after it's brought in the house?
Our own Dr. Don Bukstein was interviewed last year on how to deal with allergies. See the interview here
The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology posted an article and video with Dr. Allen Meadows discussing the difference between a pine tree allergy and a "Christmas" tree allergy. See that article and video here
Pine trees that are cut down and put in homes as Christmas trees can have weed pollen and mold in them. Your ornaments might also be a little dusty.
Getting tested is the best way to see what causes you to sniffle and sneeze when the tree is in your house.
