A long winter can mean a late spring. This season promises to have just as much pollen and allergens as years past but within a shorter amount of time. Dr. James McClellan from Bayside Allergy in Traverse City explained some of the reasons why this spring might be worse for people who suffer from these allergies.
Dr. McClellan offers tips on how to prepare yourself if you know you have a tendency to have allergic reactions in the spring. Some ideas include using an over-the-counter allergy medication and looking into more powerful solutions if the problems persist.
There are medications for allergies including pills, nasal sprays, dissolving tabs and allergy shots. For more information from Dr. McClellan, see the full interview.
