Pollen season is over, but allergy season is far from over, according to Leonard Bielory, M.D., specialist in allergy and immunology with the Department of Environmental Sciences at the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. Bielory provides the daily pollen count, and is certified by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology National Allergy Bureau. Mold spores are on the rise and indoor allergens are becoming more problematic, Bielory said. Mold spore counts are expected to be heavier than usual, and as people are rummaging through their closets for something to wear for the holiday season, dust containing spores can become dislodged, Bielory said.
