    Dr. Bassett Contributes to ScienceLine – Are pets good or bad for your child’s allergies?

Dr. Bassett Contributes to ScienceLine – Are pets good or bad for your child’s allergies?

For most of my childhood, my parents were reluctant to adopt whatever barked or meowed. Part of it was because of my dad’s unadmitted phobia of dogs; another part had to do with the fear my pediatrician had struck in my mom. If she wanted to keep me and my sister allergy-free, he told her, then no pets should be allowed in our house. Read More: http://scienceline.org/2018/01/pets-good-bad-childs-allergies/

Are you allergic to Christmas trees?

Tips to avoid holiday allergy misery! It’s that time of the year, when many households are bringing the holidays in with fresh decorations and their Christmas tree, in to their homes. Have you noticed that each year, you may experience what appears to be a winter cold, flu or perhaps something more? Guess again! You are likely dealing with allergic reactions to your fresh tree itself. In fact, as soon as within 3 day, the indoor level of mold spores start to dramatically rise inside your home (up to five times normal). That means puffy eyelids, watery, itchy eyes, sneezing […]

Dr. Bassett Contributes to simplemost.com – We’re Entering An Extra Miserable Allergy Season This Fall

Most people associate seasonal allergies with springtime. But fall can feel just as miserable for people who suffer from itchy eyes, sneezing and wheezing. And health experts say this fall allergy season could be a particular doozy for the more than 50 million allergy sufferers out there. Summer weather conditions and continuing warm temperatures into September have led to what doctors call a “perfect storm” for a difficult allergy season. “What we are seeing with this warmer weather pattern is that we are headed for a bumper crop of molds,” Dr. Clifford Bassett, an allergist and assistant clinical professor at New York […]

    Dr. Bassett Contributes to Women’s Health Magazine – 6 Signs Your Fall Allergies Might Be Something More Serious

Dr. Bassett Contributes to Women’s Health Magazine – 6 Signs Your Fall Allergies Might Be Something More Serious

This doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have fall allergies—but it might not be the allergies that are causing your symptoms. If you have an itchy tongue, lip, or throat after eating certain fall foods like apples, you might actually have an oral allergy, says Clifford W. Bassett, M.D., founder and medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York and author of The New Allergy Solution: Supercharge Resistance, Slash Medication, Stop Suffering. In most cases, they’re not serious but they can be uncomfortable, so it’s best to avoid the foods that bother you, if you can, Ogden says.

Dr. Bassett Contributes to SheKnows – Why Fall Allergies Always Sneak Up on You

Pumpkin spice tissues aren’t on the market (yet), but for many of us, allergies are a seasonal ritual — as familiar as the lattes, granola crunch and, yes, even pumpkin spice lip balm that accompany the first crisp, put-you-in-the-mood-for-apple-picking days of fall. We might think that fall should offer us a reprieve from the bursting blooms of spring and the sinus crud that often comes in with winter. However, according to Dr. Clifford Bassett, founder and medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York, fall is actually quite a fertile time for allergies. “In most areas of the country, is a time of […]

Dr. Bassett Contributes to Today – Fall allergies will be bad thanks to ‘perfect storm’ of ragweed, mold

The ill effects of the hot, muggy summer will last long after the temperatures have started to cool, allergy experts warn. “What we are seeing with this warmer weather pattern is that we are headed for a bumper crop of molds,” says Dr. Clifford Bassett, an allergist, assistant clinical professor at New York University and author of “The New Allergy Solution: Supercharge Resistance, Slash Medication, Stop Suffering.” “Whenever you have warmer periods mixed with some precipitation, it’s the perfect storm for ragweed, weeds and mold spores,” Bassett says.
