Allergy Sufferers Brace for Early Spring Season

Wednesday, 04 Mar 2015 04:03 PM

The long, cold winter of 2014-15 is beginning to ease in many parts of the country. But millions who suffered through those blistering winter blasts are bracing for an early spring that could make for an unusually bad allergy season.
 
Fox News reports individuals in some regions of the country are already seeking out allergists for symptoms of spring allergies — runny nose, sneezing, trouble breathing, and others that are often confused with signs of a common cold. 
 
“After several doses of antibiotics and going to urgent care, they suggested we come to the allergist and see,” Nickolas Floratos, a father of twins in Nevada who suffer from allergies, told Fox News.  “That’s how we came to find out they have asthma and allergies.”
 
Joel Katz, M.D., director of the Allergy and Asthma Center in Las Vegas, notes skin tests can determine whether a patient suffers from allergies. Antihistamines, nasal steroids, allergy shots, and asthma inhalers can all ease symptoms.
 
For reasons scientists don’t entirely understand, spring allergy seasons have worsened in recent years — often striking earlier and harder than in years past.
