Spring allergies arrive early and threaten to be severe
This spring threatens to deliver a particularly nasty allergy season, and those who suffer from hay fever (seasonal rhinitis) need to be prepared, experts are warning. Indeed, as well as being worse than usual, pollen allergy symptoms are affecting people much earlier this year.
According to a press release Dr. Jordan Josephson, a sinus specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York "with the crazy up and down weather, some parts of the country [US] could see worse allergy-provoking conditions. There is likely to be a 'pollen superburst' this season, so sufferers should get ready. It promises to be a nasty spring," he added.
It's crucial to deal with allergy symptoms immediately, according to Josephson.
