Reactions to ragweed

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

Allergy threats are everywhere- and identifying what you are dealing with is a big part of the battle.

We have one possible culprit in this week's Neighborhood Health Watch.

Ragweed is the issue Dr. Sheila Clasbey is often seeing.

Symptoms include scratchy throat, sneezing, sinus congestion, wheezing, asthma flares.

To prevent symptoms take your allergy medications. Stay indoors if you are especially sensitive to ragweed.

See the doctor if you are short of breath, having asthma symptoms or if you have a fever or chest pain with breathing or sinus pain or ear pain.
