How do seasonal allergies occur?
The symptoms of seasonal allergies occur when our healthy immune systems start to identify relatively harmless environmental triggers (like mold, pollen, and dog dander) as harmful invaders. Developing this allergy reaction depends on individualized risk factors, such as family history, early exposure to allergen triggers, being born in during allergy season, and early use of antibiotics. Interestingly, developing seasonal allergies requires multiple seasons of exposure. That is why infants are not susceptible to seasonal allergies but may develop symptoms as they age.
What are the tops signs you should look for?
Obvious signs of seasonal allergies include runny and congested nose, itching and watering eyes, sneezing, and cough. More subtle signs include dark circles under the eyes, increased fatigue, inattention, and sleeping problems
