Mild winter means harsh spring allergies

San Antonio, TX – March, 2016 – This year’s warm winter means that spring allergies came early and hard this year, and Texans are already feeling it.

"The difference between last year and this year is the mild climate we had this winter. We had some rainfalls last month and this month, so the pollen is coming higher and harder," said Alyssa Arredondo, a physician assistant at Texan Allergy & Sinus Center. "People are suffering from their allergies more than usual at this time of year."

Stuffy noses and scratchy throats are across Texas and they’re not going away anytime soon. Allergy sufferers can get relief from over the counter antihistamines, but for chronic allergies immunotherapy is recommended.
