If things ever start to bloom around here, the downside will be that our allergies start to kick up. According to allergist Dr. Julia Montejo of Fairview Clinics, there’s good news and there’s bad news this season.
Autumn officially kicked off on Saturday morning, and while many count fall as their favorite season, it’s the time when people’s allergies fire up the most. Especially this year.
When August comes around, Cortez Jones says his allergies get him “discombobulated.” Watery eyes, runny nose. It’s part of almost every Minnesota August. The ragweed is in full bloom, pollen is flying through the air. “My allergies are worse than 5 other states I’ve been in,” wrote Kat Melgaard.
