Outsmart allergies: Watch local pollen counts

Dr. John Villacis, an ADC allergist and immunologist, says one of the best ways to combat allergies is to be prepared by watching pollen count levels.

“Patients all the time ask me, ‘What can I do during the allergy season? How can I better prepare myself?’ So one of the tips I usually recommend is to watch your local news,” he said.

Many stations in Central Texas offer daily pollen count information, which can help you plan your day.
