Cedar Fever map

Cedar fever can affect individuals far from the source of the high concentration of pollen.

Cedar fever season is upon us once again, complete with runny noses, itchy eyes and general misery. But what exactly is cedar fever and why is it so insufferable this time of year?

For starters, cedar fever isn’t a flu or a virus — it is an allergic reaction to the pollen released by mountain cedar trees. In Texas, the predominant species of mountain cedar is the Ashe juniper.

Do NOT use nasal decongestants such as afrin and similar products. Use of these products over 3 days causes your nose to become an "addict" resulting in chronic nasal congestion when the product is discontinued.
