  • Seasonal allergies, also known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis, affect millions of people every year. While not life-threatening, the symptoms can be disruptive and make everyday activities uncomfortable. These allergies occur when your immune system overreacts to airborne allergens, such as pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds.

    When you inhale these allergens, your immune system mistakenly identifies them as harmful and releases chemicals like histamine. These chemicals trigger allergy symptoms like a runny nose, itchy eyes, and congestion. If you have seasonal allergies, you may also be more likely to develop asthma.

    Common Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies

    • Runny or stuffy nose
    • Itchy, watery eyes
    • Sneezing
    • Postnasal drip
    • Facial pressure or pain
    • Itchy ears or throat
    • Fatigue

    Seasonal Allergy Triggers

    The timing and severity of your seasonal allergies will depend on the specific allergens you're sensitive to. Common triggers are:

    • Spring: Tree pollen is the main culprit during spring.
    • Summer: Grass pollen is most prevalent in the summer months.
    • Fall: Ragweed pollen is a significant trigger for fall allergies.
