Symptoms & Treatment
Allergies (also referred to as Hay Fever) commonly take two different forms: seasonal and perennial.
- Seasonal allergies typically occur in spring, summer, and early fall and are caused by allergic sensitivity to airborne mold spores or pollens from grass, trees, and weeds.
- Perennial allergies occur year-round and are generally caused by dust mites, pet hair or dander, cockroaches, or mold.
Common Symptoms Associated With Hay Fever Include:
- Runny nose
- Itchy eyes, mouth, or skin
- Stuffy nose
