How To Control Seasonal Allergies

For anyone who suffers from seasonal springtime allergies, it's rare to get through the day snot-free. Springtime allergies mean itchy eyes, runny noses and constant sneezing at any given hour.

In the video above, Dr. Travis Stork of "The Doctors" goes over simple ways to control your out-of-control allergy woes. Little things, like mowing your lawn in the afternoon and treating your symptoms early, are ways to survive allergy season.

Springtime allergy symptoms include coughing, sneezing, watery and itchy eyes, ear infections and asthma. Most people are allergic to tree pollen, ragweed or grass, during spring and summer months but things like mould and dust mites are also common in warmer months.

And even though we're just getting over the Polar Vortex, Huffington Post Canada blogger and microbiology expert Jason Tetro says the "Pollen Vortex" is a rare springtime phenomenon that will leave allergy sufferers miserable this year. Because of the cold and long winter, trees won't pollinate until May, and grass pollination will occur at the same time — producing double the pollen, allergists say.

But in the meantime, there are small changes you can make to avoid an allergy break down. Watch the video above and leave your tips and tricks in the comments below:
