What Triggers Spring Allergies?

The primary sources of allergies during the spring months in New Jersey are pollens from trees, grass, and weeds. These pollens become especially bothersome from March through May, affecting individuals with allergic tendencies.

Keep in mind that allergies can develop at any age, so even if you have not had allergies in the past, you might experience symptoms now.
