OKLAHOMA CITY - While a lot of people are enjoying the summer sun, experts say some Oklahomans will retreat to the indoors this fall.

Doctors with the Oklahoma Institute of Allergy & Asthma are warning that fall allergy season could be the worst in three years.

“Now is the time for people to start taking their medication.” said Dr. Amy Darter, lead allergist at the Oklahoma Institute of Allergy & Asthma. “ Grass allergies have been bad all summer because of the amount of rain we’ve had. Where we usually see brown lawns, everything is green, and now weeds are taking off. Be prepared, it’s really causing problems.”

Experts warn that patients who usually wait to start taking their fall allergy medications until Labor Day should start taking them now.
