The Upstate has the perfect climate to produce lots of pollen, but allergists say this year may be milder than last.
2013 proved to be tough for those with allergies due to all the rain the Upstate saw. This year should not be as bad.
Tree pollen will start to irritate allergies a few weeks into March. Grass pollen will show up mid-April.
Allergists say the worst part of the season will be the end of April and beginning of May.
If your children are exhibiting allergies, now is the time to get them tested. Doctors recommend getting them tested as early as 2 years old if they are producing allergy symptoms.
Many symptoms include runny nose, itchy eyes, and congestion. These symptoms can be treated with medicine or shots.
