Allergy Season Off to an Early Start

Man SneezingST. CLOUD — Many of you are probably feeling that familiar discomfort of itchy, watery eyes, congestion and stuffy nose. It’s because the allergy season is off to an early start this year.

CentraCare Allergist Dr. Stephen Leslie says the mild winter and spring has meant more people are suffering from allergies earlier than normal.  In fact, Dr. Leslie estimates the tree pollen season is 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule, but adds it will likely end up being a normal allergy season.

So what do you do?…Dr. Leslie says most allergy symptoms can be treated with an over-the-counter antihistamine. But, if you have severe symptoms, contact your doctor.

He says if you suffer from allergies, it is also a good idea to keep your windows closed and run a fan or the air conditioner to keep the pollen out of your house.
