MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The start of allergy season may have been delayed this year by wet weather and cold temperatures, but now with spring here experts expect a burst of pollen.

The biggest culprits this time of year are trees, grasses and mold.

“Pollen, typically higher in the morning. You want to be outside…later in the day when pollen counts are typically lower,” Dr. Bassett said.

Dr. Clifford Bassett says starting treatment before symptoms start is key.

Allergists also recommend wearing sunglasses to keep pollen out of your eyes, and showering every night to wash all the pollen off your skin and hair.
