ABILENE, Texas - It's that time of year again. As the seasons change, so does what's in the air.
Most allergy symptoms can be treated with over-the-counter medication.
However, in severe cases, it's best to seek professional care.
"If you're having severe symptoms, if you're having difficulty breathing, if you have an underlying medical condition like asthma, then it's probably a good idea to go to your primary care physician," said Greg Young of the Hendrick Healthy System.
Young also advises against self-treating young children.
Because of their age, children with allergy symptoms need to be followed more carefully.
If left untreated, allergies could cause breathing problems, especially for people who suffer from asthma.
