NWA Hit Hard With Allergies_-7063690928861722948
We’re seeing more pollen in the air earlier this year.You can blame your allergies on the warmer weather.
Tree and grass pollen, plus outdoor molds are all prevalent.

Doctors say avoid opening windows in early spring months to keep out the pollen.
If you go outside for a while, change your clothes or wash your hair once you come inside for the day.

Karen Maves / M.D., Allergist: “I think if you recognize that you’ve had seasonal allergies in the past you can expect that you’re going to have those every year. It’s a good idea to get your allergy medicines started early before the symptoms get bad. Otherwise you’re playing catchup and its very hard to get symptoms under control.”

You can also find some relief from over the counter medicine.
Antihistamines and nasal sprays can help.
