London — Spring is in the air, and so is misery for millions of seasonal allergy sufferers. Stopping to smell the flowers can lead to sneezing, watery eyes or worse for Londoner Alex Hill.

“It’s like stuffy nose, sinus headaches, like nosebleeds,” he told CBS News as he walked his dog Roxie through a park in the British capital.

But scientists in the U.K. say they’ve found a better way to measure exactly what makes people like Hill miserable, and they’re hoping it can lead to more useful advice than the currently available pollen counts.

Researchers at King’s College London and Imperial College London believe measuring and reporting the levels of airborne grass allergens, instead of the pollen particles that carry the tiny offenders, could be more beneficial for hay fever sufferers.
