Grass pollen allergies

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. James Bush is helping his patients with grass pollen allergies at Colonial Heights Medical Center.

While there has been some relief from allergies due to decreasing tree pollen over the month, increasing grass pollen has now started to affect people.

Symptoms include nasal congestion, sinus inflammation, headaches, sore throats, and usually poor sleep.

Treatment includes over-the-counter antihistamines to provide some relief.  Prescription medications for more severe allergies are also available from your healthcare provider.
