Seasonal allergies are here.
The fall brings on the effects of ragweed, fall-blooming elms and mold.
Nearly 20 percent of the population has seasonal allergies.
“I’m allergic to nearly everything in the air,” joked Jonathan Williams.
Kay said allergy flareups can reveal other conditions that were previously unknown, such as asthma.
“People may have their first period of difficulty breathing, coughing, tightness in the chest,” she said.
But Kay said people do not have to suffer through allergies like they did 15 to 20 years ago.
"'It's just allergies’ doesn't cut it anymore,” she said. “There are treatments.There's no reason to be miserable.”
