EAST TEXAS-- Fall is here, bringing allergies with it . In fact, East Texas doctors say this year's spring and fall allergies are worse than the last few years because of the harsh, damp winter.
Although recent rains washed a lot of the pollen out of the air, the ragweed count is high. One Tyler Allergist says, "Probably the most effective treatment for allergies is going to be an intranasal steroid. However, those are only available by prescription, so if you're looking for something over the counter, antihistamines are available as well as nasal washes."
