Doctors have warned those who suffer from allergies to expect a longer and more severe allergy season.

Health experts said last year’s mild winter didn’t kill off problematic plants like ragweed.

The early bloom at the start of the year has also played a factor in the severe season.

“Allergies are going to be tough and we may not get that winter break again.  So people whereas who may not see doctors in the winter for their allergies, that may not be the case this year,” said allergist Steve Cole.

Dr. Cole said you can cut down on allergic reactions by waiting to do your outside activities until the evening when the pollen count is lower.

Also, you can change your clothes and wash your hair at night to get rid of the pollen you have picked up throughout the day.
