BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- If you've been sniffling and sneezing, you might be able to blame it on the weather we've had.
Pharmacists say while the extreme changes in temperature aren't exactly to blame, they do play a part.
The few warm days we've had were enough to get allergens into our systems after being outside, and the freezing days are causing problems indoors.
"We've had a lot of people come in with allergies and colds, particularly, the weather change, having windows down and that kind of thing. Some people here particularly lately have had their heat on, so the moisture in the air in their homes isn't as good as maybe it should be," said Shaun Curtis, a pharmacist at Sheldon's Express.
Curtis recommends using a humidifier for the remainder of winter.
Also, he says saline nasal sprays and over-the-counter allergy medications can help ease symptoms of colds or allergies.
If symptoms don't improve, you may need to take a trip to the doctor's office.
