TEMPE, AZ - The official start of fall is just days away and those with allergies are already feeling it.

Dr. David Mendelson at Tempe Saint Luke's Hospital says that might be because of a plant called ragweed.

He says the plant hypersensitizes your immune system, so if--for example--you already have a mild allergy to grass, it will make your allergies a lot worse during this time of year.
