Fall allergy season is predicted to be the worst this year because of the drought.
The allergy season started between four to six weeks ago. Wishard Respiratory Therapist Jamie Lee said there has been an increase in ragweed, which caused people to have symptoms like runny noses and itchy eyes.
"If they are allergy symptoms, we would like for them to get something over the counter first. Try to block those symptoms. See if that takes care of it, and if not, they need to visit their primary care physical," Lee said.
Looking ahead, Dr. Martin Kleiman with Riley Hospital for Children said the influenza is worrisome. He said, this time of year, anything could be going around, getting people sick. He said what we will start to see, during colder months, is influenza.
"Real influenza is a virus that sort of changes its coat every year or so and comes around and has the ability to infect almost everybody," Dr. Kleiman said.
Dr. Kleiman said people need to be prepared. He said people should get the flu vaccine.
"Because if you are not prepared and it comes real fast, you don't get the opportunity to take advantage of the protection that that vaccine gives you."
