Allergy season is upon us. And its causing some big problems for our little ones. Across the state kids are dealing with them. That's what we're learning from the Youth Clinic.

As we've reported, symptoms include itchy, watery eyes, a runny nose and sneezing. Those are the most common symptoms, especially right now with grass growing and trees blooming.

You can get over-the-counter allergy medicines. But if those don't work, you can talk to your doctor. It may be time for allergy tests. It could provide some relief and that will be important, because the most common allergies will likely stick around through the fall.
