HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – As cold as it’s been so far this month, the weather hasn’t spared spring allergy sufferers from developing a runny nose and watery eyes.

Holyoke Medical Center’s Dr. Gopul Malladi said there’s pollen in the air, despite the cold air. Dr. Malladi told 22News people are feeling real symptoms of spring allergies.

“That’s because some of the pollen, you’ll be surprised that at the end of February, although it’s very small amounts and those who are so highly sensitive perhaps reacting more than someone else,” said Dr. Malladi.

In the meantime, Dr. Malladi said those who’ve suffered allergic reactions to dust and mold during the winter will soon be enjoying relief from those symptoms during warmer weather.
