Worst allergy season ever?

A Chicago doctor says pollen seasons are becoming longer in our area and it's been getting worse over the last ten years.

The reason for this is not clear, but Chicago may be in for one of the worst allergy seasons ever.

Some experts link tree pollen production to higher pollution levels: the higher the carbon dioxide levels, the more pollen produced from trees.

Anyone who suffers from allergies should stay on top of the symptoms with medication.

If over-the-counter drugs are not effective, then you need to see a doctor for other treatments.
