Golf Spectators Should Prepare for Yellow on the Greens
Date:3/21/2008

AUGUSTA, Ga., March 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pollen has arrived in the South, and allergy sufferers are experiencing symptoms. About a week before the prestigious Masters Tournament, pine pollen will blanket the area in yellow, including the greens. Fortunately, pine is a weak allergen, but highly potent pollen from late-blooming trees and new grass will also be out in force. So, Masters fans, be prepared.

"Masters visitors from up North where it is still cold are the most vulnerable.

"It's best to start taking allergy medicines about a week or two before coming down, because seasonal allergy symptoms are easier to treat when caught early, before they get severe."

The tell-tale signs of allergic nasal disease are sneezing, dripping and congestion, often associated with intensely itchy, watery eyes. Allergies can also cause asthma.

"If you get here and start feeling miserable, don't try to tough it out," said Dr. Dolen. "Untreated allergic rhinitis makes you feel tired, sleepy and achy -- almost like the flu. And feeling like that, you certainly won't enjoy being out on the golf course. Of course, untreated asthma is a medical emergency."

Pre-medicating and continuing with your medicine is the best way to stave off these allergies. If medications are forgotten when preparing to attend the most famous golf event in the world, Dr. Dolen recommends that visitors have their doctor back home call something in to a nearby pharmacy. "It may take a little longer for full relief, but it's better than having no relief," he said.

You can also purchase an over-the-counter solution for your specific needs, such as an antihistamine, nose spra
