Allergy season is expected to be harsher than usual

Posted: Updated:

The nice spring weather is among us, but that means allergy season will soon be kicking in.

Allergists are predicting that spring allergies will be harsher than usual this year. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, the long, cold winter and higher than average snowfall means plants are ready to produce more pollen.

Nurse practioner Jodene Burkhart has already seen some allergy cases in Scottsbluff and says there is no way to prevent allergies, but you can at least control symptoms.

"Pollen, it is high this year. Pollen is highest in the mornings from 5–10 and if you leave the symptoms untreated, you can end up with a sinus infection," says Burkhart. "One way to completely resolve allergy problems is to be allergy tested by a specialist and they would do treatment."

Although the entire U.S. is expected to have a harsh season, Nebraska did not make the list of the worst places for spring allergies in two thousand fourteen.
