How to survive allergy season

Living in Austin means living with allergies. Allergic rhinitis, or hay fever, is a common condition that causes symptoms many of us are very familiar with, such as sneezing, stuffy, itchy or runny nose, watery eyes, and itching on the roof of the mouth. Dr. Colleen S. AdkinsAllergy and Asthma Specialist at ARC Wilson Parke, ARC Round Rock, and ARC Medical Plaza Specialty, says “Here in Austin, many people suffer from allergies due to the year round prevalence of pollen.”
