San Marino’s Crowell Public Library is hosting Dr. Karl von Tiehl, an allergy and Immunology specialist affiliated with Huntington Hospital in Pasadena, during the library’s Smarter Living Series on Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 1 to 2 p.m.
In this free workshop, Dr. von Tiehl will help educate participants on how to identify which allergens cause springtime allergies, how to avoid them, which medications are effective, and what other effective treatments options are available.
Spring allergens may include tree and grass pollens that can trigger allergy symptoms, such as sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, swollen mucous membranes, coughing, and itchy, watery eyes. Just as the amount of pollen can be affected by your location, so can the type of symptoms and severity.
There’s no cure for springtime allergies, but there are steps you can take to prevent them, from medication to adjusting your household habits.
Dr. von Tiehl will discuss these steps during the workshop, at the Crowell Library’s Barth Community Room. The library is at 1890 Huntington Drive in San Marino.
