Spring approaches, allergy season on the horizon

Local News

With spring right around the corner, the allergy season will soon be approaching. 

The main culprit during the allergy season is pollen.

Many people around the country suffer from allergies. In Ohio, it’s no different.

Symptons usually include watery eyes and a runny nose.

Doctors say it is not too early to stay prepared.

“As soon as you start to feel those symptons, the watery eyes, runny nose, maybe a little bit of a cough, it’s a lot of different great allergy medicines out there. There are pills, there are sprays, but if you start those sooner rather than later, you’ll have a good spring season,” said Dr. Michael Sevilla from Family Practice Center of Salem.

Spring starts March 20.
