Dr. Warrier talked to Hayley Harmon with LEX18 about how our mild winter has affected spring allergies. While pollen arrived around the same time as always, the number of peak pollen days are unusual for this part of the season.

Symptoms you will notice: Itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose, congestion, post nasal drainage, and cough.

Tips Dr. Warrier suggested:

For most with seasonal allergies, a nasal spray or over-the-counter antihistamine pill will help for the pollen season.

For those whose symptoms last longer or are more severe, you may want to consider allergy testing and if recommended, allergy shots.
