The wet weather this winter primed the trees and cold temperatures delayed the start of allergy season. Now the tree pollen and budding trees are pollinating aggressively.
The biggest culprits this time of year are trees and grasses, as well as mold. Experts say people with allergies should check pollen counts before heading out. Pollen counts are typically higher in the morning, and lower later in the day.
Starting treatment before symptoms occurs is key. Allergist also recommend wearing sunglasses to keep pollen out of your eyes, and showering every night to was all the pollen off your skin and hair.
