If you typically wait out your spring-time allergies, doctors say don't. Taking precautions this year could reduce your risk of catching coronavirus.

Pollen and other allergens can cause inflammation, which weakens your immune system and could make you susceptible to the coronavirus.

Doctors also said spring allergies can cause itchy eyes and now, which can make you want to touch your face, something health officials strongly advise against.

You can talk to your doctor about what over-the-counter or prescriptions medicine that will work best for you.
