… Allergy season seems to be starting earlier this year -- and it’s going to be lasting longer…“What we’re hearing, at least anecdotally, is patients saying their allergies are more severe, symptoms begin a few weeks earlier than usual, and bother them for longer periods of time,” says allergist Dr. Thanai Pongdee, who practices at the Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Fla., and sees patients not only from the southern region of the U.S., but also from the East Coast and parts of the Midwest. “It doesn’t seem to matter where they’re from.”
