FAIRFIELD - Spring is in the air, and so is a lot of pollen.

For allergy sufferers, the high pollen count means lots of sniffles, sneezing and itchy eyes.

According to Pollen.com, the Bridgeport/Fairfield area has one of the highest pollen counts around.

Allergist Dr. Katherine Bloom says that some symptoms can be avoided or reduced by staying clean and removing pollen through changing clothes and bathing more frequently.
