Staff accountant, Karson Rosander, moved to Billings 8 years ago, and says he's impacted from allergies year round. He tells us, "I take allergy medication several times. Well, three times a day, and I come in and get shots weekly."

Dr. Laura Moore says the fall season is seeing a lot of mold and wheat allergies at the clinic. Also that, "This time of year, as I mentioned, weeds and mold are very common, but we also, as it gets colder, we go inside more and then you start and get more of the year round allergens like your dust allergies."
