Spring makes most of smile. It is so great to feel the warmth of the sun, see the flowers beginning to bloom and the grass take on a new bounce as the world fills with new life all around us. But there are many of us who knows that it also means the beginning of the allergy season. With the sunshine and warmth comes pollen and seed heads, and with those comes itchiness, runny noses and much suffering.
