Pollen count and pollen calendar


What are pollen?

pollen are microscopic grains formed by seed plants for the purpose of pollination. Due to the wind, male pollen reach the female parts of the flower and make fertilization possible. More than half of all plants use the principle of pollen formation.
However, pollen, also known as pollen, causes allergic reactions in many people. The pollen act as allergens. The immune system recognizes the alien - but actually harmless to the organism - substances and initiates the immune response. If the immune system reacts on contact with the corresponding allergen every time, it is called an allergy.
On pollen calendar indicates the flowering of the different plants, because in an allergic person usually only certain allergens lead to a reaction of the immune system. The dermatologist can determine by the so-called prick test very reliable against which pollen is an allergy. For allergy sufferers, a pollen count calendar can be important when it comes to determining the current load on the air.

Important NOTE:

The pollen schedules always differ slightly from region to region. This is mainly due to climate and weather, which on the one hand are essential factors for the flowering time of the respective plants and on the other hand can influence the pollen itself. Long periods of drought and moderate wind favor the pollen count. Therefore, the pollen calendar below does not claim to be complete or correct and only serves as a rough guide to educational / educational purposes! For the pollen count in your region please contact the family doctor or pharmacist.
