Doctors Predict 'Bad' Fall Allergy Season

Ad Feedback

As the fall season approaches, it also brings the season of ragweed. For many, that means sneezing, sniffling and itchy eyes.

For those who suffer with allergies, it may be even worse this year. Doctors warn that recent rain and flooding will make this allergy season a particularly bad one.

"We're looking at the perfect storm. A lot of pollen, a lot of ragweed and weeds, and a lot of precipitation," said Dr. Cliff Bassett of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York.

"I walk around with eye drops and nasal sprays. With all of this rain and cleaning out the basement from floods in my parent's house, I got very bad allergic reactions," said Dana Conte, an allergy sufferer.

The summer heat wave will also make allergies worse this year. Higher temperatures help plants grow, meaning more pollen will be released in to the air.

For some relief from your allergies, doctors suggest wearing large sunglasses. They will help keep the pollen from getting in your eyes when you are outside.
