Texas Cedar Fever (allergies) and Influenza
By: Dr. Brian Byrd
For a lot of us, January and February are characterized by sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes. That’s “cedar fever” or mountain cedar allergies. It isn’t an infection but it can make you miserable.
The other bug-a-boo is flu. It’ll knock you out of commission for about week with fever, cough, chills, and muscles aches.
If you get either of these, call us. We can treat you via telehealth (Zoom) to save you the trip.
Mountain Cedar allergies responds well to a steroid injection. Your doctor may suggest it because it will clear up within a couple of hours.
