CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte's pollen count was almost in the double digits Tuesday making it seem like a very early start to the pollen season.

WBTV Meteorologist Jim Lytle says many trees are already starting to produce blooms that produce the substance that makes millions of American's stuffy and sneezy every year.

We talking to Dr. Charles Bregier with Presbyterian Urgent Care says many of the symptoms can be at least lessened with over the counter medicines like Benydryl.

The season is only expected to get worse with the early onset of warm weather.
