ST. CLOUD — This year’s allergy season saw a month long late start, but July should be better for people with allergies.

Centra Care allergy doctor, Mary Keating says the trees pollinated at the same time the grass did this year.

Usually trees pollinate in early April and May but this year the process was delayed a month due to a longer winter.

Most tree pollen is gone for the season due to recent rain, but there’s still lingering grass pollen effecting people with allergies.

Keating says people who have allergies should avoid hanging their laundry outside and should turn on their air conditioning.

If that doesn’t work, Keating says there is a wide range of over the counter allergy medications your doctor could prescribe to you.

The allergy season is expected to pick-up again in mid to late August.
