Allergy season back in force?

(WHTM) – Allergy season is back, and some might say with a vengeance.

We asked an allergist if he’s seen an uptick in patients.

He said no, but if you’re feeling worse than usual, it may be the weather.

“We had a warm spell in early March, then things start biting and then you can have pollens coming out earlier, you can have molds coming out, mold spores coming out earlier,” Dr. Nathan Hare, allergist, said. “Then just the swinging back and forth between warm, and then it gets cold and then it gets rainy. During those spells, things may not be as bad, so you’re up and down a lot with the weather changes.”
