Everyone loves spring. As winter recedes and warm weather begins, new grass emerges, trees regain their leaves, and flowers start to bloom. It’s a wonderful time to get outside, bask in the sunshine, and work off those “winter pounds.”
For some individuals, spring also brings “hay fever” or seasonal allergies. The medical term for this is “allergic rhinitis,” and approximately 20% of Americans suffer from the condition.
