Got Fall Allergies?

Do your allergies seem to be worse in the fall? You might not be alone. Our health writer, Torie Temple talked to a local doctor about fighting allergies this time of year. Here's what he had to say...

According to Dr. Doug Tzanetos of Kentuckiana Allergy, ragweed could be the culprit for fall allergies. Though these allergies peak in September and October, they can last through November.

"A lot of people take their allergy medicine every day and prescription nasal sprays when allergies flare, but you can actually do the opposite," Dr. Tzanetos says. "Allergy medication can work quickly when you are symptomatic, but prescription nasal sprays should be taken whether or not you are symptomatic. Using a prescription nasal spray every day could be the next best thing to allergy shots."
