Lots of folks have been sneezing, sneezing and sneezing more. Sure, it’s spring time. But the wind is also really kicking things up. And it sounds like it's a record year for one allergen.

That's what we're hearing from the folks at Asthma and Allergy Associates, PC and Research Center. They tell us they're seeing an unusually high pollen count. It’s a record year for the stuff.

So you could be sneezing, sniffling, and have red, scratchy eyes. Then if you have drainage, it can affect your throat as well.

The best advice is, if you're very uncomfortable... talk to your doctor.

You could benefit from medication that can help alleviate symptoms or maybe even allergy shots. But again, your doctor will know what's best.
