Pollen count hits extremely high level

Posted: Updated:

Spring: the time of year that every allergy sufferer dreads. This spring has brought no relief from the tiny yellow attackers better known as pollen.

The yellow/green pollen is on cars, sidewalks everywhere. Friday's pollen count was over 4,000 almost doubled from Thursday.

So what can you do? We spoke with an allergy specialist who says his office has been slammed with patients.

"Stay indoors if you can during the peak pollen hours. Right now pollen is high throughout the day. If you had to choose when to go outside, keep your windows closed and your car and your home. Wash your hair before you go to bed," says Allergy specialist Dr. Keith Lenchner.
