Late Winter Could Lead to Harsh Allergy Season

Share this post

It is probably safe to say that warmer weekends are in sight in Northwest Indiana.  Though, unfortunately for allergy sufferers the late, winter delayed start to the pollen season could mean a harsh allergy season.  That's because both trees and plants are blooming at once, increasing the concentration of pollen.  Ft. Wayne allergist, Dr. Douglas Neeld says one out of every four of us suffers from seasonal allergies  and those allergic to tree pollen and grasses will likely experience symptoms until the end of July.  And while Dr. Neeld says allergy shots are very effective, those whose seasonal allergies seem to be getting worse each year, he says they should talk to their doctor, "If you think you are allergic and you need help, you really need to be tested. And then we have a lot better idea of is this the allergy season that’s causing you the trouble, is it an infection or is possibly an infection on top of allergies."
