Experts predict harsh allergy season for LI
Experts say this allergy season could be one of the worst for Long Island because of all the recent wet weather and wind.
Health officials say the wet and snowy winter gave way to a so-far mild spring, which means trees and flowers are blooming early and all at the same time. However, that doesn?t mean the allergy season will end early.
As tree pollen season comes to an end, experts say grass and weed allergies will increase during the summer months.
Ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. Philip Pearlman, of St. Francis Hospital, recommends patients get a blood test to find out exactly what they are allergic to.
