Christmas tree allergy!

As if things couldn't get any worse recent research has shown that approximately 7% of those with pre-existing allergies may also be allergic to their festive tree! Ragweed, grass and tree pollen may disperse from the tree once brought indoors. Mould may also grow on the tree but is not usually dispersed and some people may react to the tree sap. Advice is to wash the tree down before bringing indoors and for people with severe allergy- go artificial!
