Often what we think of as a cold could actually be fall allergies.
One of the main contributors to fall allergies is the ragweed plant.
A single plant can produce one billion pollen grains per season.
Ragweed grows abundantly throughout the South, North, and Midwest, and its lightweight pollen grains can travel up to 400 miles in the wind.
