NORWALK - This week, News 12 Connecticut's What's Ailing You looks at spring allergies. 

According to one doctor, some patients have already started complaining about sneezing, watery eyes and other typical allergy season symptoms.

Dr. Phil Hemmers, of Bridgeport-based Allergy Associates of Fairfield County, says that allergies this spring could be more severe or last longer due to the cold and wet winter. 

Hemmers advises patients to start working on an allergy action plan early in the spring, which might entail the use of antihistamines. 

Closing windows and putting fresh filters into heating and air-conditioning systems could also help allergy sufferers.
