Newswise — Allergens know no boundaries. The approaching Memorial Day holiday is a time when grass pollens peak for some areas of the country, lurking until late June. This means heightened symptoms and suffering for some of the 50 million Americans with allergic conditions, thanks to an allergen trifecta.

Not only will allergy sufferers feel the effects of grass and weed pollen, but also summer molds and other near inescapable seasonal staples like stinging insects and fresh produce. Symptoms can be even stronger than they were during the unforgiving spring, due to the seasonal priming effect.

Allergist experts from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) are available for interviews both before and after the Memorial Day holiday.

Allergist spokespersons can also discuss:• Ways to reduce summer allergy and asthma flare-ups• Summer triggers to avoid• How to be prepared while traveling to different regions• What destinations are best for allergen escapes
