Pollens are the reason for spring allergy and the onset of their misery whether counts are high or low. But there are ways to win through in the fight to breathe easy and remain relatively sneeze-free.

James Sublett, MD, president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) said, "People focus on the highs and lows of pollen counts. What they don't realize is that a high total pollen count doesn't always mean you will have allergy symptoms. The pollen from the plant you are allergic to may not be high. The key is to know what you're allergic to, and how to treat your particular symptoms."

More people than ever suffer from allergies of all kinds. Allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with an annual cost in excess of $18 billion. One in five Americans suffer from allergies each year. And though spring can bring lots of sneezing and sniffles, it's important to remember that there are tools at your disposal.
