If You Think That Snow You Cleared This Winter Is Done Tormenting You, Guess Again – ACHOO!
The past winter is turning out to be the bad gift that keeps on giving.
Because of all the snow we received, doctors are forecasting a rough spring allergy season.
Doctor Rachel Skekely is with the Cleveland Clinic,
“We’re a little worried that maybe it might be a bad spring allergy season across most of the country. When you have a lot of precipitation, obviously, you have more water in the soil and plants can grow better; so you get more plants, which equals more pollen.”
Dr. Skekely goes on to say that pollen usually starts to weaken a bit when it rains – but then the mold allergies kick in.
So what can you do? She advises to start taking your allergy meds EARLY!
