When we talk about seasonal allergies, most people think of springtime, but fall allergies are just as common and troublesome. When leaves start to fall and the air cools, a host of allergens can cause irritation.
The most common fall allergy is ragweed, which normally pollinates mid August through October. It causes hay fever with symptoms including itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, and a runny, stuffy nose. Mold spores are also released in autumn, and become more common in the air as decaying leaves and other vegetation fall to the ground, mold can be an irritant to people with allergies. Allergies are extremely annoying but before you reach for the other-the-counter or prescription medication try some natural alternatives.
