A local allergy doctor says despite the early start to the outdoor allergy season, the pollen count was pretty average.
Dr. Steve Kagen is with Kagen Allergy Clinics. He says there was plenty of grass and ragweed pollen, and another frost will officially bring the outdoor season to an end.
But Kagen says we’re moving into the indoor allergy season now, and dust and pet allergies can be an issue for people.
Kagen says they counted about 15,000 outdoor pollens this year. He says the worst season in the past several years was in 2013, when there were around 23,000 pollens.
