With the rain and warmer temperatures, comes the sniffing and sneezing of the dreaded allergy season. If the usual pills and sprays aren't enough, there's another treatment option that could actually freeze your allergies away. "It's a device that uses cryotherapy," said Gregory Levitin, MD, senior faculty of otolaryngology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
