Bad News for allergy sufferers, doctors say this could be a long and intense season. Dr. Stephen Fritz with Idaho Allergy says compared to last year, he's seen an increase in the amount of patients looking for allergy relief. The reason why is the cooler damp weather we’ve been experiencing this spring. Fritz says he is starting to see patients who normally don't suffer from allergies.  Dr. Fritz says the majority of over the counter medications work, but says if they aren’t helping, or you experience allergies for more than six months out of the year, you may need to see a physician.
