Spring brings thousands of allergy cases across U.S.

Flu season is not going anywhere right now. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that the year’s spring allergies are going to become severe in the coming days. The US health watchdog has said that this year’s allergy season will be far worse than previous years.

This is going to be very dreadful for people in the US as they had already their hands full of allergies. Flu season has been very bad till now with more than forty US states struggling to cope with the increasing cases of flu.

CDC has said that this year as many as ten to thirty percent adults in the US may be affected by allergies. While talking about the warning and increasing flu menace Dr. John Basso, chief of allergy and immunology at Nyack Hospital in New York, said, “The prolonged moisture in some regions this winter may have laid the groundwork for a bad season. A warm, dry spring following a wet winter is a recipe for high pollen counts. But if we were to have a wet spring, pollen might not be such a problem.”tamiflu

Nonetheless the CDC has also said that despite being very bad, the flu season is going to be shorted this year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has also said that people should be prepared to face itchy eyes, runny nose and a lot of sneezing.

There is no denying the fact that during this time of the year allergies are more common because trees that causes allergy symptoms are blooming such as oak, maple, and birch. CDC went on to add that pollination is going to cause severe allergies. The CDC has asked physicians to use anti-allergies. Besides, the CDC has also asked people to use oral antihistamine or over-the-counter intranasal steroids can help to protect individuals against allergies.
