Seasonal Allergy Symptoms
Seasonal allergies are reactions to irritants such as pollen, dust, pet dander, and mold. These irritants can cause symptoms such as:
Watery, Itchy, or Puffy Eyes
Our board-certified physicians can make the best recommendations for treatment options based on your symptoms. Options can include immunotherapy, medicated ointments, or prescribed antihistamines.
Seasonal Allergy Causes
The cause of seasonal allergies depends on the time of year. In Spring, trees such as birch, cedar, or chestnut create pollen that causes an allergic reaction in some people.
In Summer, grass can trigger patient’s allergies. This includes ryegrass and timothy grass and some weeds.
The fall season brings ragweed, and it’s pollen. Symptoms of ragweed allergies can cause severe allergic reactions.
In Winter, most outdoor seasonal allergies are dormant due to the cold temperature. However, spending more time indoors means allergic reactions to pet dander, dust, or mold.
