The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has released it's annual list of spring allergy hotspots and Colorado Springs makes the list.
Colorado Springs ranks # 93 on the top 100 list.
The rankings are based on a city's pollen score, the number of allergy specialists in the city per patient and the number of allergy meds used by each patient.
More than 40 million Americans suffer with springtime allergies.
While early spring temperatures are a welcome surprise for many across the country, allergy season is not especially for southern states.
Knoxville, Tennessee tops the list, followed by McAllen, Texas, Louisville, Kentucky, Jackson, Mississippi and Wichita, Kansas.
