VIRGINIA BEACH -- After many cold days, the warmer temperatures are a welcome change.

While it feels like spring, it's beginning to look like it, too, as flowers are beginning to bloom.  That means allergies will be kicking up, if they're not already.

Janis Sabol, a registered respiratory therapist with Optima Health, says the wet winter will likely cause more problems than usual for allergy sufferers.

"I think the amount of moisture that we've had is just going to contribute to a high mold count and O think people who have allergies are just going to need to be very careful and cautious this spring."

If you take medicine for allergies, experts say take it as prescribed to keep the sniffles, sneezes and itchy eyes in check.
