Symptoms and 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
