Rain & Allergies

August 08, 2013|KWCH 12 Eyewitness News

The recent rains have been good news for allergy sufferers, but it is making allergies flare up for mold spores.

Mold is at a high concentration across Kansas due to the extra moisture in the air. With more rain in the forecast, experts say the sniffling and snezzing is only going to get worse.

"The more rain we get, the more exuberant growth we'll get on the weeds," said Van Strickland, asthma and allergy consultants.

Doctors suggest taking a shower at night to rinse off allergens. Saline sprays and over-the-counter eyedrops can also help ease symptoms.
