Late spring causing severe allergies

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - It's spring allergy season..

And the pollen combined with the air quality where you live can be the cause behind your suffering.

Cooler temperatures delayed spring allergies in parts of the country.

Doctor Jackie Eghrari-Sabet, an allergy/immunology specialist, says if you start with the west and the drought, certainly those dry and hot winds will make your allergies worse because what's in the air can travel further and faster.

“Then as you come across the country to the Midwest or certainly now in the east where we've had this unbelievable amount of rain the problem here again can be it washes away the pollen but the molds are going to be incredible" she said.

Cooler temperatures delayed spring allergies in parts of the country.

Dr. Eghrari believes this delay could end up having many suffering all summer long.

"Because we've had the late onset of the spring and what we don't know is what's the weather going to be in terms of blooming of other pollens like weeds” she said. “ We could certainly have this parade of one leading into the other that the tree pollen leads to the grass pollen leads to the ragweed. And you can have a stuffy nose through every single month of the whole spring and summer."

The FDA recently approved two new pills to help grass and ragweed allergy sufferers.

Doctors say if you know you are allergic to ragweed, the time to address it is now.

Dr. Eghrari says the reason you want to know about that now is you need to start the therapy for that about four months before hand. And that would be now in many parts of the country.
