Feeling itchy lately? How about sneezing more often?
Allergy season is in full swing in Northeast Ohio.
Akron area Allergist Dr. Bela Faltay joined the 1590 WAKR Akron General Good Health Hour earlier this month.
Dr. Faltay described an increase in not only allergies among patients this season, but a higher number of patients exposed to poison ivy.
"I think the safest bet is to shower after you come in from outside, because poullen covers your skin and can get in your hair and if you're that sensetive, you can actually have skin reactions from contact," Faltay said.
Faltay also recommends using aggressive soaps while showering if your skin has been exposed to plants and brush.
