Doctors say they are already busy seeing patients suffering from allergies, something that doesn't usually happen until after Labor Day.
Via Christi Health allergist, Dr. Thomas Scott says climate changes aren't helping. The dry windy weather is causing pollen to blow into the air and stay in the air, then we are breathing it in.
"One of the down sides of climate change," said Scott, "is that the ragweed season will be extended. It will be longer and stronger."
Scott advises allergy sufferers to start taking a nasal spray and antihistamine now, everyday. If you are feeling itchy and sneezy, he recommends seeing a doctor right away.
