It’s not quite spring but we all know it is headed our way, right? With spring allergy season just around the corner, you might be wondering how bad is 2017 going to be for those who suffer from seasonal allergies.

It’s a valid question, because we all know some years are better (or worse) than others. With spring just a few weeks away, that means pollen, mold and other issues with plants and trees is coming – bringing along itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, wheezing and congestion.

The allergy and asthma experts at Midwest Allergy know that you and your loved ones want to stay happy and healthy this spring allergy season.

Spring allergy season

Experts are saying that the warm up much of the country experienced in February could mean an earlier, longer and more intense allergy season. Pollen counts across the U.S. are higher due to the warm weather – even though we did get a blast of winter in March.

In the south especially, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology has seen a high concentration of tree pollen. The Midwest and mid-Atlantic is also seeing moderate tree pollen.

Allergy sufferers see the most symptoms on hot and windy days but damp rainy days tend to wash pollen from the air, experts say.

One way to fight spring allergy season is to start your allergy medications now, before the season kicks into high gear. Even if it is a mild year – and predictions are showing that it is looking to be a rough year – getting started on your medication early means fewer symptoms and issues.

Starting – and keeping up with – allergy shots is also a good idea.
