Spring has sprung. March 20th is technically the beginning of spring, even if the ground is still covered in ice and snow. Spring heralds seasonal allergies for more than 35 million in America. ?Pollen and other particles, produced in the spring and summer, enter our environment and can trigger an exaggerated reaction in those whom have allergies. This reaction can include itchy eyes, watery eyes, sneezing, and a runny nose. The higher the pollen count, the more likely a person is to experience symptoms.

Most likely, if you have these symptoms in the springtime, you may have allergies. Doctors can perform confirming tests.

To alleviate symptoms, you can take many medications over the counter including antihistamines, eye drops, decongestants, or nasal sprays. Stronger medicines can be prescribed if necessary.
