Current pollen in Sydney?

I know that your grass pollen count states grass pollen is currently low, but I'm wondering what other pollen is currently around? I've been having quite bad hayfever symptoms today. I would appreciate your response.

Hi Ecop,

We had a look and it seems that although pollen counts have been low over the past 24 hours airborne mould has been extremely high with the recent meteorological conditions.

We do note interesting information on our air analysis on our website here:

Cheers,

Hello Edwin,

Thank you so much for looking into it. I've been tested for all the common grass allergens and haven't had reactions to them so your response is very helpful to me in understanding what I've been having reactions to. I also have had severe allergic reactions on or around 16th of October (my worst was in 2010 and this year), so I'm wondering if you would happen to have records of what was the highest allergen in the air on 16.10.2016?

Thank you again for your time and all your work. It's a great step to help all those with seasonal allergies.

Where do we go for Sydney airborne mould spore information?

There doesn't seem to be anything for Sydney except the Low pollen box on the web site home page.
I am confused about whether mould info is also available here.
If not here, where?

Many thanks.

Sorry for the hassle, but in case you missed my earlier question, is there any chance if you would happen to have records of what was the highest allergen in the air on 16.10.2016?

Hi EcoP
16th October was a high pollen day in Sydney with high grass counts and lots of tree pollen particularly Cypress pine;some Eucalyptus. Common weeds were also significant

Thank you SO much for responding, Connie and Edwin! It's another piece in the puzzle for me in trying to figure out what I've been having severe allergic reactions to. Really grateful for all your work! I'll be following the pollen counts for this year and hopefully the website will have the same data available as in the app.
