Spring is here all across the Treasure Valley.  It's a beautiful time of year for sure, but the downside to our amazing city and all our trees and flowers?  Allergies.  They are brutal.

There are a number of allergy indexes and all seem to be saying that hay fever is on the rise with pollen levels rapidly increasing with the great weather.

Experts recommend getting your over-the-counter medications (like Flonase or Nasacourt) or prescription medications as soon as possible to help avoid the irritation.  Our breezy conditions increase the severity as well.

An Idaho Falls television station (KIDK) spoke with an expert, and you can see that report HERE.
