High winds spark more allergies in East Texas
East Texas — Doctors say allergy season is at its peak right now, and UT Health and Science Center's website says trees are at the highest pollen count.
While winds are hitting 25 to 30 miles per hour in East Texas, many are suffering from the allergens. Local doctors recommend taking an allergy test and using anti-histemines and nasal sprays to fight the pollen.
One local pharmacist, John Stephenson, says people are taking the advice. "I'd say about half the people coming through the door have something to say about allergies or are getting medicine for it," he says.
East Texas is on severe allergy alert all week.
