Allergy season is in full bloom in northeast Wisconsin as spring weather returns. Many of the issues now are associated with tree pollen, which can be blown for hundreds of miles before causing symptoms like seasonal asthma, itchy or watery eyes, and nasal congestion. Allergist Dr. James Warpinski with the Bellin Allergy Clinic in Sturgeon Bay says it will not take long for symptoms to arrive after you are first exposed, especially as trees begin to pollinate closer to home.
Warpinski recommends those affected by allergies caused by pollen and mold to run their air conditioner to filter the air and change their clothes and even take a shower after being outside.
