If sneezing, coughing and watery eyes sound familiar to you, you're not alone.

One physician says allergies are taking their toll on many this season.
He offers some advice on what you can do to help relieve your symptoms. He says it starts with avoiding the cause whenever possible.

"It can be controlled using alot of simple measures. Limit your exposures if you can identify them. If it's yard work, wear a mask or respirator while cutting grass. You can use a saline rinse to flush out your sinuses as well after a known exposure," said TJ Health Partners Family Medicine Physician Brad Mallory.

Doctor Mallory says changing the air filters in your home can also protect you from common allergens like dust. If that doesn't work, you can consult a doctor, who may advise over the counter or prescription allergy medication.
