Are your allergies in full swing? You’re not alone! Dr. Shah talks with WBNS TV in Columbus about why you may be experiencing more intense allergies than normal this year. See the full segment below. This April and May, many people are suffering with allergies and asthma. Typical symptoms include itchy eyes, nasal congestion, and sneezing. Yet you may be suffering from other symptoms such as headaches and an itchy throat.
Right now, we are in the middle of tree pollen season, and that will be closely followed by grass related allergies. Heavy bouts of rain can provide some relief by temporarily clearing out the air. Allergies are not just for the summer time though. Many people experience allergic reactions in the winter due to dust mites, pet dander and dust.
Dr. Shah does have some insight on how to combat your allergies. With mild symptoms, over the counter antihistamines can provide you with temporary relief. However, if your symptoms are becoming more regular, it’s time to consult with your doctor or look for an allergist.
