What are Seasonal Allergies?

Seasonal allergies affect individuals who are allergic to pollen, dust, dander and more. Sometimes referred to as hay fever, seasonal allergies occur when plants bloom and are pollinating. People who suffer from seasonal allergies typically experience symptoms from spring to fall.

What are the Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies?

Seasonal allergy symptoms may vary between people. However, common signs that you’re affected include:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Cough
  • Postnasal Drip
  • Fatigue
  • Sneezing

How Can Seasonal Allergies Be Diagnosed?

If you think you may be suffering from seasonal allergues, contact an allergist. He or she can take your medical history and recommend the best course of action to provide relief. Your doctor may recommend a skin prick test, where small amounts of allergens are pricked into your skin. If a raised bump, or hive, appears it means you are allergic to the material. Another option is an allergy blood test, where a laboratory measures your immune system’s reaction to allergens. 

Seasonal Allergy Treatment in Charlotte

If possible, limit your exposure to allergens causing your seasonal symptoms. You can do this by keeping doors and windows shut and being aware of the pollen count outside. Over-the-counter medicine can be effective in relieving seasonal allergies that are not too severe. If symptoms are not manageable with over-the-counter medicine, your allergist may prescribe prescription medicine.
