As you probably are aware, seasonal allergies are at their worst during the spring, summer and fall seasons.
Thankfully, they are almost unheard of during the winter months.
Most people look forward to the nice weather of the spring and fall seasons, but those of us with seasonal allergies absolutely hate (and dread) these times of year.
As all allergy suffers can attest, this is with good reason!
What Causes Seasonal Allergies?
When the immune system becomes too active it often responds to pollens during the spring and fall. In many parts of the US the pollens come from trees.
Grass is also a big cause of them and grass can be found just about anywhere in the US during the summertime.
When late summer hits, the pollen seems to come more from ragweed. Mold can cause problems during any of the seasons mainly because it does just fine indoors. With seasonal allergies, the eyes are often affected directly by things like pollen.
Diagnosis and Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies
Some of the symptoms of seasonal allergies you should be on the lookout for are: itchy nose, irritability, itchy roof of the mouth, wheezing, itchy eyes, coughing, runny nose, headache, red eyes or eyes that seem to lack moisture.
Rarely, people also suffer with symptoms of seasonal allergies including depression, lack of sleep and lack of a good appetite when battling seasonal allergies.
The diagnosis of suffering from seasonal allergies will depend strongly on what season the symptoms are occurring during. Mucus from your nose might be used as a guide to help the doctor give an accurate diagnosis.
Skin tests for seasonal allergies are also a very common diagnostic tool for doctors. They will lightly scratch the skin and introduce several varieties of allergens to see if there is a reaction.
Treatment of Seasonal Allergies
Many medicines used as treatment of seasonal allergies can be bought over the counter and work relatively well to control the symptoms of seasonal allergies.
These come mainly in the form of nose sprays and antihistamines. Allergy shots can be given by the doctor and work pretty well to keep seasonal allergies under control.
Decongestants can really help if you are having trouble with congestion. Make sure that you are aware of any side effects before accepting a prescription treatment of seasonal allergies from the doctor.
If you deal with high blood pressure then you will need to be monitored while using decongestants for seasonal allergies.
It is not recommended to continue the use of any of the remedies listed above for too long. These should only be used to offer temporary relief. Using nose sprays for too long can result in bleeding from the nose, as well as soreness.
