Colder weather makes allergies worse

Posted: Updated:

Health officials are also warning people who suffer from allergies to take precaution as the temperatures fluctuate.

Doctors say it's important for those that have year-round allergies to continue taking allergy medicine.

They say even people who don't have allergies can develop a runny nose and congestion in the rapidly changing weather.

Doctors advise using an over-the-counter saline nasal spray or nasal sinus rinse if you're congested.

They also say to see a doctor if over-the-counter treatments don't work.
