For many North Texans, the term ‘seasonal’ allergies can be at best, misleading– because sufferers know the misery is often year round… and the typical sniffling and sneezing can be just the beginning.
It may be winter in North Texas, but we’re seeing pollen counts that, in some areas, resemble springtime. Dallas had the highest pollen count in the country on Monday.
Maybe it hit you over the weekend or perhaps a few weeks ago regardless, if you’re itching, sneezing, have a runny nose and watery eyes — you’re not alone. Medical experts say the mild winter means allergies are and will be much worse this year.
Allergy season has come early and hit with a wheezing vengeance in parts of the nation this year, thanks largely to an unusually warm winter.
There may be a dusting of truth to allergy sufferers’ complaints that this season is, well, a bigger headache than years past.
The pollen count is up — way up. In fact, Dallas is No. 2 and Fort Worth is No. 3 on a list of the worst cities for respiratory allergies.
