Springtime is almost here but Seasonal Allergies don’t follow our calendar because they have their own calendar. Pollen is the biggest cause of Seasonal Allergies. Trees start pollinating as early as January, followed by most plants in the spring, grass in the summer and weeds in the fall.
Windy days cause more allergy suffering due to more pollen traveling through the air. Rainy days provide some relief as the pollen is washed away. Other causes of Seasonal Allergies include Dust Mites, Mold Spores and Pet Dander.
If you have all or most of these symptoms then you likely have Spring Allergies:
- Watery eyes
- Runny nose
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Itchy eyes and nose
