SHIFTING WEATHER CAN UNLEASH POLLEN 'SUPERBURST'

FRIDAY, June 2, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- The changeable weather that many areas of the United States experiences may lead to a pollen[1] "superburst" -- and for allergy[2] sufferers that may mean misery, a sinus specialist cautions.

"It promises to be a nasty spring," Dr. Jordan Josephson, from Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, said in a hospital news release. Usually, pollens come in waves. First, trees, then weeds, then grasses. But this year, they may all hit around the same time, he said.

About 60 million Americans suffer from pollen allergies[3]. Symptoms can include nasal stuffiness and discharge, headaches[4], cough[5], sore throat[6], swollen glands, hoarseness[7], bad breath
