Allergy season is here

ALPHARETTA, GA (CBS46) -

Dr. Jeffrey Gallups said allergy season arrived early this year, as the pollen count is already above average.  He said many people may experience symptoms.

“It can be post nasal drip, it can be itchy eyes or feel like you have dust in your eyes. It can also be a little cough,” said Dr. Gallups.   

He said the only way to know if a person has allergies, is to get tested.

“After the allergy test… if it shows that you are reacting then we make serums and place you on what’s called immunotherapy,” said Dr. Gallups.

Immunotherapy is better known as an allergy shot.
