ATLANTA (WTVM) – Allergy sufferers beware, you may have just as much problems this fall as you did in the spring and summer.  

According to the CDC, ragweed and mold give many allergy sufferers problems during the fall months. Experts say ragweed begins releasing its pollen in late August, but often lingers into the late fall.

Mold is also a big problem for people as spores breed in wet areas, which means piled up wet leaves can be the perfect breeding ground.

CDC officials say a good allergist should be able to rid you of some of your symptoms.
