So if you are experiencing symptoms, take a moment to consider whether you have a cold or if are having an attack of fall allergies.

Allergies can begin to develop as you get older so it is possible that even though you haven’t had allergies in the past, this year you are being impacted. Consider allergy testing.

Allergy season is going to be a longer one than usual for many of us in the country. Temps have been elevated for awhile now across most parts of the country. Good article and correlation between two.
