Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies are among the most common. Often referred to as hay fever, they are the result of pollen—tiny grains released by flowering plants, grasses and trees. These are dispersed into the air and can spread great distances—easily hundreds of miles—especially on windy days. When inhaled, pollen causes nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes and throat, watery eyes and postnasal drip.
