In your house or in your workplace, you’re probably hearing a chorus of sneezes.

That’s because allergies are going around this week. They're at a medium-to-high level in our state right now.

As we've talked about in the past, allergy symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, and red, watery eyes. Facebook friends told 11 News that their entire families are dealing with symptoms like this right now!

So the question is... What's making us sneeze? We got the answer from pollen.com for our state. Ragweed, chenopods and sagebrush are high right now in Colorado and will be for the next few days.

So depending on your symptoms, you may want to stock up on those over-the-counter allergy medications for the family. Or you should talk to your doctor about other options.
