APPLETON - Fall is here. At least as far as allergy season goes.
The Kagen Allergy Clinic says this year is really unusual because ragweed pollen is already in the air.
So if you suffer from hay fever, you may already have nasal congestion, itchy eyes and sinus headaches. Those with asthma may be coughing and wheezing.
According to the clinic, nearly 30% of Wisconsinites develop reactions to environmental allergens such as weed pollens and mold spores.
“The best treatment for allergy symptoms is avoidance, but it will be impossible to avoid ragweed allergens this fall," said Dr. Steve Kagen in a release.
Hay fever affects nearly 1 in 3 school age children.
