Cedar Fever
Cedar Fever sounds like an infectious disease but it’s really a form of EXTREME ALLERGY caused by the cedar trees we have here in Arizona.  Runny nose, itchy, red, runny eyes, sneezing, wheezing, nasal congestion, postnasal drip, sinus pain and pressure, s

As cedar fever is actually an allergy, patients most severely affected are those with serious chronic medical conditions like diabetes or breathing conditions like asthma and COPD.  Controlling those conditions can be protective.

Cedar fever can occur anytime between November and March but is most pronounced from mid-December to mid-February.  It can also be a problem in other states, like Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and New Mexico.

If you have cold or flu symptoms that just don’t go away, consider allergy skin testing and treatment, especially if the over-the-counter antihistamines and nasal sprays don’t work for you anymore.  Allergy immunotherapy or “allergy shots” are used to decrease the overreaction of the immune system to cedar trees as well as other allergens with which you may come in contact.
