Fall is one of the worst times for allergy sufferers

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Doctors say allergy season is at a high right now, maybe you've felt it.

Spring and Fall are the worst times of the year for allergy sufferers.

As we move away from tree pollens we are heading straight into the weeds and it looks like they are here to stay until at least late October, into early November.

Allergists tell us they recommend an over the counter, store generic allergy medication. If your symptoms worsen try a nasal spray.

"So we are right in the middle of the bad part of Fall allergy season, so this is weed pollen season, we still have a little bit of grass pollen, but weed pollen is really severe right now, we are seeing a lot of Chenopod weeds, which are Kosha, Russian Thistle, Pig Weed,” said Dr. David Scott, Allergy Specialist with the Allergy and Asthma Center of Western Colorado.

Dr. Scott says it’s always best to talk with your primary care doctor or book at an appointment at the Allergy and Asthma Center of Western Colorado.
