WCBS 2 News: Mild Winter May Mean More Trouble For Outdoor Allergy Sufferers

Health reporter Dr. Max Gomez reports while most people are welcoming warm winter temperatures, many people are suffering with spring allergies. According to Mohammad Younus, M.D., an allergist with the Center for Allergy, Asthma, & Immune Disorders at HackensackUMC, allergy season really means pollen season, which starts with trees in the spring, then grass in the summer and finishes in the fall with ragweed. But, right now an early allergy season is overlapping with the end of cold and flu season, so runny noses could be due to either or both.
