Spring season equals allergy season for many

Spring could also be known as "allergy season" in Kansas, with flowers and trees pollinating and blooming, causing a lot of us to sniffle and sneeze more than usual.

The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy's Amber Haag says a steady stream of folks have been coming in with allergy symptoms, especially during smokier days in the Flint Hills.

Haag recommends visiting with your local pharmacist to determine which allergy medication is right for you. According to Weather.com, the pollen forecast is moderate and air quality forecasts are good for Emporia for the rest of the week. However, there are no indicators for the Flint Hills smoke.
