What’s in a pollen count?

A recent CNN article sites that more than 60 million Americans suffer from allergic rhinitis, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

Pollen seems to be the culprit to many people’s coughing, sneezing, itching and wheezing this year.

So what exactly is a pollen count?

CNN explains it as a number that symbolizes how much pollen is in a certain area during a specific time period. Higher counts mean more allergy symptoms.

Allergy symptoms can often disrupt sleep. The National Sleep Foundation states that symptoms of allergic rhinitis can lead to poor sleep, which can result in significant daytime sleepiness and fatigue.
