Here is a good web site about chronic, non allergic hives which are known as Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria or Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria. Many of our patients have had a nice response to Xolair injections given monthly. Xolair is a 'biological' originally developed for allergic asthma but approved last year for chronic hives.

The Oak catkins have fallen off of my Red Oak trees at home but are coming on strong on Live Oaks like these in front of the office, More pollen to come.

The catkins are coming, the catkins are coming! Below are pictures of the leaves blooming and catkins forming on Red Oak trees in my backyard over the last 7 days. Catkins are the male 'flowers' on many pollinating trees and form in the spring as the leaves come out. The catkins contain the pollen which is released into the air to hopefully be blown to the much less conspicuous female 'flowers' on higher branches. Successful pollen on Oak trees results in acorns which can contain 1-3 seeds able to grow new Oak trees. Catkins on Red Oaks grow to about 1 1/2 inches in length, on Cottonwood trees they can be 3 or more inches long. These catkins are also called worms, snakes, strings and tassels. Afer releasing their pollen these fall to the ground in large quantities and many people sweep or use leaf blowers to clean them up. Raking or sweeping them can release more pollen from them when they are on the ground. Our warm winter (warmest on record) has resulted in earlier formation of catkins and may lead to higher pollen levels. Oak pollen usually peaks around April 1st in Austin. If you are allergic to Oak pollen, don't mess with catkins, wear a mask if you sweep or rake them and use a nasal steroid (cortisone spray) daily from now till late May. Stay healthy.

Flowering trees like Redbuds, Bradford Pears and fruit trees are blooming like these in my back yard. Interestingly flowering plants rarely cause allergy problems. On a sunny day these trees are abuzz with bees, their special delivery pollen couriers. The pollen from flowers is generally heavy, sticky and does not blow into the air. These plants use a lot of energy forming the flower and fragrance that attract bees, insects, birds and bats to spread their pollen. Florists are the only people who get lots of exposure and become allergic to flower pollen.

Austin's warmest winter on record will likely lead to lots of Spring pollens and allergy misery
Austin just experienced the warmest winter on record. As the 26 days of 80-degree-plus temperatures and already blooming wildflowers can attest, this winter – which ended Tuesday for meteorologists (but not for astronomers, who are waiting for the spring equinox later this month) – was freakishly…
