Allergies early because of warm temps

Did the beginning of spring leave you with itchy, watery eyes, a scratchy throat or nose?

You're not alone.

According to a recent Gallup-Healthways poll, nearly one in five Americans suffered from allergies in March.

That's up from years past and April is headed in the same direction.

Higher pollen counts across much of the country are being blamed for the uptick in allergy sufferers.
