    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    A resource to check your local pollen counts can be found through the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology's website (www.aaaai.org ). Click on the patient and consumer section and look for the pollen levels tab.

    I agree, the AAAAI is a great site, and is very geographically precise and updated very frequently.

    Here's a more precise link to the AAAI's National Allergy Bureau site: http://www.aaaai.org/nab/index.cfm?p=pollen

    Other good sites are pollen.com and The Weather Channel site:
    http://www.pollen.com/allergy-weather-forecast.asp ?
    http://www.weather.com/activities/health/allergies/?from=healfl

    Also, check to see if your allergist has his/her own website, which may feature pollen counts. I know my allergist does his own pollen and mold counts, and it's wonderful. Judy

    Yes, the aaaai.org pollen count website is very useful to me. I check it everyday, except weekends. I wish they counted every day, but they need days off too.

    Here is the link to the national map http://www.aaaai.org/nab/index.cfm?p=pollen

    However, I created a browser buttun to my region. This site is useful to me year round since I have year round pollen allergies. It is also useful to those of you who suffer mold allergies since they also count that.
