Is anyone else showing any early symptoms of "Spring" allergy season? I am trying to decide if I am getting another head cold, or if it's just the crazy seasonal shift (allergies)

It was 79 degrees today, and I am already having late-March symptoms & taking meds that I have never taken this early in the season.

The seasonal allergy season I can put up with, but I don't think I could survive the air pollution in some South Asian countries:

Delhi's air more dangerous than Beijing's
Gardiner Harris,NYT News Service | Jan 26, 2014, 06.16 PM IST

NEW DELHI: In mid-January, air pollution in Beijing was so bad that the government issued urgent health warnings and closed four major highways, prompting the panicked buying of air filters and donning of face masks. But in New Delhi, where pea-soup smog created what was by some measurements even more dangerous air, there were few signs of alarm in the country's boisterous news media, or on its effervescent Twittersphere.

Despite Beijing's widespread reputation of having some of the most polluted air of any major city in the world, an examination of daily pollution figures collected from both cities suggests that New Delhi's air is more laden with dangerous small particles of pollution, more often, than Beijing's. Lately, a very bad air day in Beijing is about an average one in New Delhi.

There is more to seasonal allergies than a little congestion and sneezing. If you notice eating watermelon, cantaloupe or avocado make you cough and itch, it may be a symptom of ragweed allergy. But more help might be on the way for some of the 23 million hay fever sufferers.

I've been allergy tested three times over the last 14 years. There are just some things you don't want to know!
