Ragweed Season Begins Tomorrow

Tomorrow is probably not going to be your favorite day.

It's the start of ragweed season.

Allergy sufferers will have to deal with sneezing and itchy and watery eyes for the next few months, all because of the irritating plants.

Kltv 7's MedTeam Doctor, Ed Dominguez, has some tips to make the season a bit more bearable: "You have to try to avoid those things that may make allergies worse. So, for example, if you live in a home where you open the windows a lot, during allergy season, it's a probably important to keep the windows closed a lot. Change the air filters fairly frequently."

If you do spend time outside, take a shower and wash your clothes to get rid of pollen. And use a dryer instead of hanging your clothes outside and attracting pollen.
