Doc: Allergy season forecast worse than usual
Long Island doctors say this year?s allergy season is due to be one of the worst in recent memory because of all the wacky weather.
Dr. Philip Perlman, from St. Francis Hospital, says he?s been seeing a higher volume of patients suffering from allergies. Perlman says the wet spring and early summer mean that ragweed plants are just pollinating now.
It?s already a bad time of year for mold allergy sufferers, ?now the ragweed comes in and it gives them a double punch,? Perlman says.
Perlman says it?s best to keep car and house windows closed and wash pets? fur after they go outside.
