Abstract

You might think it's a little early to be talking about pollen. We generally associate high pollen counts and hay fever with warm temperatures and good weather. "Hay fever" even gets its name from an old-time belief that the smell of hay during summer could irritate the body. The truth is pollen shows up a lot earlier than you might think, and it could be the cause of the "cold" you keep getting.
